It has recently been proven that the hassles of 
college registration cause cancer in white 
laboratory mice. 

Laboratory tests conducted at an area 
university actually prove that cancerous cells 
were found in mice subjected to the pressures of 
existing policies of campus registrations. Profe- 
ssors conducting the study are trying desparately 
to explain the resons for the cancerous oc- 
curences, which as yet have not proved fatal. 

The tests were taken over a two day period in 
which approximately 3500 mice were placed in a 
maze and led through almost six different lines 
(according to sources, no one is sure exactly how 
many lines there were) before being allowed to 
see sunlight or breathe fresh air. I ts reported that 
the size of the maze had been reduced con- 
siderably from previous tests. 

Initial reaction from the mice was a continual 
head-on collision with walls. After a few hours 
inside the maze the mice obviously still had not 
caught on to where they were supposed to go, 
although they eventually did seem to gain a sense 
of order and form lines. They soon discovered, 
however, that they were simply standing in the 
line to get into standing in line. 

■ In one particular room of the maze the mice 
would scatter upon entering, only to find them- 
selves in lines again to exit. 

The final two rooms of the maze were possibly 
the most interesting, In one, the mice entered 
fluffy and furry and exited with the coats having 
been literally taken from their backs. In the other, 
a tiny camera took pictures while the mice 
yawned, dozed, and scowled. None of the pictures 
were available for print. 

Possible explainations for the cancer were 
provided by area scientists. Dr. Knowles Itall is 
trying to establish evidence that the cells were due 
to fatigue and heat, coupled with the repeated 
wall collisions. Another reputed professor, Dr. 
Gedt Downs, believes that it was not the maze 
itself, but the social activities of the mice that 
caused the serious illness. 

Dr. Min E. Forms is currently trying to prove 
that the widespread cells were caused, not by 
registration, but by the red tape fed to the mice 
prior to registration. He reports that the mice 
actually ate the tape and the chemical substances 
in it have already been proven cancerous. 
Other professionals insist that confusion was the 

Page 2 

major agitator of the mice. All professors do 
agree on one thing : Unlike cigarettes, which have 
also been proven cancerous, registration is not 
addictive or in any way habit forming. Those mice 
wbo had been previously trained to talk were 
overheard saying that "they would never go 
through another such experience as long as they 

It has been suggested that such registration 
exercises include a warning explaining the 
hazardous results on health. Late reports from 
officials indicate that furthur tests are scheduled 
to be made in late January of 1979.

Briefly speaking 

Student portraits for the Potpourri, NSU's yearbook, are 
now being taken in rooms 314 and 315 of the Student Union. 
Two photographers will be on campus Tuesday, September 5 
through Friday, September 15 and one will remain on 
campus until Friday, September 22. Portraits may be taken 
8-12 and 1-5 daily by appointment only. Students who have 
failed to make an appointment may do so in the Union. 

Students should be reminded that the portraits are taken in 
color and are of no cost to the student. Portraits may be 
ordered when the proofs are received. Portraits may be 
taken in street clothes, however senior men should wear a 
coat and tie. 

The Northwestern Recreation Complex is still available for 
use by Northwestern * students, according to Complex 
director Bill Hochstetler. TheComplex is open every day but 
Monday from 1 : 00 p.m. to 7 p.m. The complex is located just 
off of the Louisiana Highway 1 Bypass. Students are ad- 
mitted free with their ID. 


Cheryl Purcell of Nat- 
chitoches and NSU was named 
second runner-up in the Miss 
Louisiana beauty pageant 
held recently in Monroe. Miss 
Purcell, who holds the title 
Miss Greater Natchitoches, 
also won the preliminary 
swimsuit competition. 

In addition to winning 
trophies for her honors, Miss 
Purcell was given $1,025 in 
scholarship money and a $25 
gift certificate from Beall's in 
Monroe. Miss Purcell was 
sponsored by the Natchitoches 
Area Jaycees.

NSU's famous columns located in front of Cald- 
well Hall, were originally a part of Bullard 

presidency of Joseph E. 
Gibson to last another hun- 
dred years. 

In 1857 the school building 
proper, or the Convent Build- 
ing, was erected. It was a 
brick structure 170 feet long. It 
included a study hall, dining 
room, and a music room. 

In late fall of 1875 the con- 
vent closed because of lack of 
funds and the building fell into 

On July 7, 1884, the state 
legislature created a state 
normal school in Nat- 
chitoches, Louisiana. The 
school was then known as 
Louisiana Normal School. In 
1918, the name was changed to 
Louisiana State Normal 
College. This name lasted 
until 1944 when, in December, 
the name was officially 
changed to Northwestern 
State College. Legislative Act 

31 gave the school university 
standing on June 18, 1970. 

The opening date was 
November 1, 1885. The faculty 
consisted of the acting 
president, Dr. Edward E. 
Shieb, Prof. Earl Grace and 
Miss Nettie Rousseau. Sixty 
pupils enrolled in the 2 year 
course. Each term was six 

The first three graduates of 
Louisiana Normal School in 
April 1886 were Miss Mary 
Washington, Mansfield; Miss 
Sallie Phillips, Bienville 
Parish, and Miss Emma 
Oswalt, Monroe. 

The first president was Dr. 
Edward E. Shieb who served 
from 1885-1888. His salary was 
$2000 per annum and his 
quarters were unfurnished

Begun by the "Ladies of the 
Sacred Heart" in 1846, the 
convent school first stood 
where St. Mary's Academy 
stands today. In 1856 the 
convent was moved to the 
present-day Northwestern 
University campus. Their new 
home was Bullard Mansion, 
home of Judge Henry Adams 
and his wife Julia Ann 
Bludworth Bullard, prominent 
citizens of Natchitoches. A 
most charming picture of the 
mansion were the four

In 1935 the two year 
curriculum was expanded to 
three years and to four years 
in 1940. In 1918 the state 
legislature granted the 
authority to confer degrees of 
Bachelor's of Arts to the 

Normal College. In 1954 a

In 1894 the Alumni 
Association was founded. Its 
first president was Miss 
Bessie V. Russell and serving 
as secretary was Miss 
Scharlie Russell. The Normal 
Alumni Fund was established 
in 1908. 

The student body govern- 
ment was begun in 1927. 

The first "Potpourri" was 
presented in 1909. The first 
"Current Sauce" was 
published in 1914 by the 
Contemporary Life Club. 

Northwestern' s first rivalry 
was in 1895 when the "Seekers 
After Knowledge" opposed the 
"Eclectic Literary Society." 
The school colors were chosen 
from the two clubs' colors; 
purple from the former and 
white from the latter. 

Master's Degree program in 
education was begun. 

The Graduate School was 
formally opened in April 1955 
when Dr. John S. Riser was 
president. The school was 
headed by George T. Walker,

The nursing program was 
sponsored by Mr. Joseph

1947. By 1949, under President 
McGinty, the program was 
solidly rooted in a firm 
foundation. It became tbe 
Department of Nursing in 
1958. In Dec. 1959, the School 
of Nursing gained full national 
accredidation from the 
National League for Nursing.

From the desk of 
Rene Bienvenu 

All of us on the faculty and in 
the administration extend a 
warm and sincere welcome to 
our students and invite you to 
share with us the dreams and 
hopes that we have for the 
future of this great University. 

Northwestern has boundless' 
potential to become a giant in 
higher education, not only in 
Louisiana, but nationwide-a 
spacious, beautiful campus, 
excellent physical facilities, a 
competent and dedicated 
faculty, active alumni, and, 

We can all be justifiably 
proud of our University and its 
contributions to education 
through the years, but we are 
confident that our most 
memorable and important 
achievements and ac- 
complishments still lie ahead. 

If mere is to be a watchword 

of this administration, let it be 
pride. We are emphasizing to 
our faculty that more pride 
should be taken in classroom 
instruction, research, 
publications and all of their 
other endeavors, and I am 
confident that our students will 
join us in creating a greater 
atmosphere of pride on the 

It is our hope that renewed 
and increased pride will be 
shown by students, not only in 
their academic endeavors, but 
also by participation in student 
government and other ac- 
tivities, by assisting in 
beautification of the campus, 
by joining us in welcoming 
prospective students and others 
to the campus and by sup- 
porting athletic programs, 
musical events, dramatic 
concerts and other programs.

President Bienvenu, caught raiding the 
refrigerator is amazed to find that Mrs. Bienvenu 
beat him to it.

It's 6:15 a.m. In the big 
house across the road from 
Chaplain's Lake, an alarm 
clock goes off. A "poor, tired 
ole body" drags out of bed and 
down to the breakfast table 
and the morning newspaper. 

For Rene Bienvenu, the day 
has begun. 

"My breakfast may consist 
of me, or of Mrs. Bienvenu and 
me," explained the familiar 
Cajun voice in an interview 
during the summer. 
"Sometimes it may even be a 
special breakfast meeting- 
something important I have to 
work on before the actual 
work day begins." 

The "actual work day" 
starts at 8:00 in the Roy Hall 
office. "The parade begins 
and usually continues till 
about 5:00 or 5:30 p.m. At that 
time I try to go to the nursing 
home to visit my parents. 
Then, I eat dinner and begin 
meetings about 7:00. They 
usually last until about 11:30, 
and then it is bedtime again," 
he continues. 

Benny Barron grins and 
pipes up, "By the time the 
motor runs down it's two- 

President Bienvenu 
chuckles. The lines of the 

admired face show traces of 
fatigue, but otherwise he is 
still the same enthusiastic, 
determined and proud man 
who became Northwestern's 
president eight months ago. 

How have those months 
affected him? "I haven't had 
any second thoughts about it — 
the basis for my going after 
the position was the belief I 
could depend on the faculty, 
staff, students, and alumni 
groups. I haven't been 
disappointed in any of them." 

"I haven't found that I was 
wrong in saying it will take 
time," Bienvenu adds, 
smiling. "Things are im- 
proving day by day, little by 
little. They are improving 
because everybody— students, 
faculty, staff, and alumnus- 
is moving to improve it. I've 
been most pleased with 
student cooperation. 

Though the dorm situations 
were avoided earlier in the 
new administration, Bienvenu 
is more at ease with them 
now. He states that the "dorm 
situation is going to improve 
tremendously. We can't 
change things overnight, but 
we have plans that will im- 
prove it freatly." The plans 
are to be announced later, and 

include the possibilities of 
reopening some dormant 

No secret to anyone in the 
state are Bienvenu's plans for 
re-establishing Nor- 
thwestern's academic record. 
He is especially optimistic 
about this, stating that "I have 
no reason to doubt that we 
cannot achieve what we set 
out to— having an 
academically superior 
university that we can enjoy 
working at and attending." 

"I'm the type, I think you 
solve problems by meeting 
them, and I've learned that 
my intuitions are not too far 
afield as regards to demands 
it places on you. I really 
haven't encountered any rude 

He still encourages students 
to stop by the house for a coke, 
or to enjoy the backyard 
swing. His office is still 
relaxed and comfortable 
(though he claims a big dislike 
to his desk chair). 

He doesn't claim to have all 
the answers although he 
believes one of the keys is 
Pride— "a pride we must have 
in all aspects of our 
educational program." 

And he is still smiling, which 
is the best thing of all.

SGA makes plans for fall semester 

as a link between the students 
and the administration. More 
importantly, the organization 
is responsible with keeping 
itself informed concerning the 
attitude of the student body 
with regard to all problems of 
student interest. 

The SGA Student Senate 
consists of twenty (20) 
members who are elected for 
one year terms. Elections are 
held twice each year with the 
Senators-at-large and 
executive officers being 
elected in the Spring and the 
Class Senators being elected 
in the Fall. Two Class 
Senators are elected from 
each undergraduate class: 
two Freshmen, two 
Sophomores, two Juniors, and 
two Seniors. The remaining 
eleven Senators are elected by 
the members of the Student 
Body at-large. 

Any full-time student who 
has an over-all grade point 
average of "C" as certified by 
the Registrar is eligible to run 
for the SGA. 

A student desiring to be a 
candidate for any of the 
various SGA offices must file 
a written "Notice of In- 
tention" with the Office of the 
Vice President of Student 
Affairs prior to the deadline 
set by the Elections Board for 
each election. 

If for some reason a student 
wishes to become actively 
involved in the SGA, but does 
not desire to run for an office. 

The SGA is readily 
preparing itself for the busy 
fall schedule. 

John McKellar, a senior 
from Bossier City, heads the 
executive council as 

Other officers include: 
Jamie Sanders, vice 
president, from Shreveport— 
Vicki A. Williams, secretary, 
from Shreveport— Alton 
Burkhalter, treasurer from 
Natchitoches— and Terry 
McCarty, commissioner of 
elections, from Tullos, La. 

New projects are : To erect a 
NSU sign on campus, pur- 
chase a new demon mascot 
costume, fund money for the 
band to get new uniforms, and 
the Allen and Allen Co. will 
provide new three-speed 
washers and dryers and can 

The SGA has also set up a 
KNWD reform committee. 

Right now, homecoming 
elections, class senator 
elections.d State Fair 
weekend plans are in the 
making. There will be NSU 
day at Hamel's Park in 
Shreveport, when the NSU 
demons play the La. Tech 
bulldogs on Oct. 21. 

The Student Governing 
Association is the basic 
campus organization that is 
invested with the respon- 
sibility of speaking for the

the boards and committees of 
the SGA. 

SGA committees include the 
following: Community 
Relations, Cheerleader 
Governing Board, Student 
Rights and Legal Aid, 
Broadcasting, Publications, 
Organizations Board, campus 
Security and Traffic Com- 
mittee, Art Series, Academic 
and Professional Standards, 
Assembly and Distinguished

Library, Student Welfare, and 
Student Services. Mem- 
bership on any of these boards 
or committees can be done by 
contacting any SGA member 
or by calling or going by the 
SGA office on the second floor 
of the Student Union. 

"Like any other 
organization, the key to a 
successful SGA is in- 
volvement", stated SGA 
President John McKellar. 
"This involvement includes 
not only the SGA officers and 
members, but the studentsas 
well. It is because of this that 
the 1978-79 SGA is em-

Two new main facets of the 
SGA this year are the new 
Public Relations Program and 
the position of Spirit Com- 
mittee Chairman.

Cafeterias offer variety 

The student union cafeteria will offer 
a new variety of foods in the fall. 

Mr. David R. Box, manager of food 
services, stated that the "cafeteria will 
cater to prices to fit the student." 

He stated that he would like to see 
more traffic flowing through the union 

A complete line of bakeries will be 
added to the menu— donuts, honey 
buns, cinnamon rolls, cinnamon twists, 
and fruit rolls. Homemade rolls will be 
baked daily. 

There will be a short order line where 
sandwiches, meat pies, onion rings, and 
hash browns will be served. 

Specials for the fall are: meat balls 
and spaghetti, chicken and dumplings,

There will be a complete line of 

snacks with four name brands to choose 
from, and self-service on ice cream, 
except for the sundaes and shakes. 

If the sororities or fraternities need 
the services of the cafeteria, Mr. Box 
said, that it would be available for 
coffee's, teas, and birthday parties. 

Box said, that if the students would 
lend their support, he would like to see 
the cafeteria remain open until 7 p.m. 
"I just want to make this their home 
away from home," said Mr. Box. 

The Iberville dining hall will have 
eight special events starting in the fall. 

The events will center around the 
holidays— Halloween, Christmas, and 
many more.

From the desk of Mayor Robert DeBlieux 

Dear Student: 

On behalf of the City Council and the 
citizens of Natchitoches I'd like to 
welcome you to our area. There's so 
much going on around here it's very 
difficult for me to suggest some little 
mini-strips to help you enjoy your stay. 
First of all, we would like for you to tour 
around the Historic District. In this 
brochure is a map of the District 
pointing out some of the more in- 
teresting historic sites. Natchitoches is 
really an intriguing little town. We have 
all kinds of cultures represented here. 
This mingling of cultures, races, 
religions, and traditions has made it 
probably one of the most unique towns 
in the state. There's a little smattering 
of French, Spanish, Italian, Creole, and 
Indian influence that actually affects 
our everyday lives. Of course we're 
greatly inQuencedby the wonderful 
culture of our black population which 
represents 42 percent 
f the total population. We've probably 
got more than our share of town 
"characters". You would learn this if 
you stayed here for just a short while. 
We have a great number of very 
talented people - artists, writers - and a 
very enthusiastic young population 

ready to go to work for the good of 
Natchitoches. It is certainly a pleasure 
serving as Mayor for these kinds of 

Perhaps no other town anywhere 
close to us has a main street that 
changes names five times within a two 
mile area. It goes from South Jefferson 
to Jefferson to Front to Washington to 
Grand Ecore Road in a very short 
distance, and it's all tbe same straight 
street and students, please pardon us 
for this. There's no way in the world 
they would ever allow my City Council 
to change this. I think we have the 
distinction of being the only place in the 
United States that built a new cour- 
thouse in 1939 without a courtroom, and 
our Church Street does not have a 
single church on it. However, Second 
Street have five churches. Our 
American cemetery retains its' name 
because for many years the local 
French people refused to be buried next 
to those so-called "upstart 
Americans". At any rate, Natchitoches 
is a fun town, a good place to live, and 
we would like to encourage you to stay 
as long as possible. 

Yours truly, 
Robert B. DeBlieux, Mayor 
City of Natchitoches, La.

'NSU is a part of Natchitoches' 

The Town of Nat- 
chitocheworks in direct 
contact with Northwestern 
State University. "NSU is a 
part of our town", says Mayor 
Robert DeBlieux. 

The Town of Natchitoches 
coordinates many things with 
the university, for example, 
"we supply the traffic control 
at the home football games," 
stated Mayor DeBlieux. 
"Everytime you turn on the 
light in your dorm room or 
turn on the water, Nat- 
chitoches is involved. 

The town has many weekly 
activities the university 
students can attend. Activities 
such as the NSU-Natchitoches 

Symphony and the concerts on 
the riverbank, are open to all 
who want to attend, unless it is 
a private iarty. 

The various churches have 
socials, dances, and suppers 
where university students are 
involved. Some of these 

socials are strictly for 
university students, others 
involve the church as a whole. 

A city-university caravan is 
in the planning to go to the out- 
of-town football games. Also 
in the planning process is 
Mayor's Night at one of the 
home football games. At this 
particular game, various 
mayors from the area and our 
town mayor will be

Protecting Our Environment 


There's good news for 
people concerned about the 
quality of life in America. 
At least one company is 
working hard and spending 
millions of dollars to help 
keep our ecology stable and 
our air and water cleaner. 

The J. P. Stevens Com- 
pany has spent over the past 
12 years more than $20 
million for environmental 

It has an Environmental 
Service Laboratory staffed 
with professionals who use 
the latest scientific equip- 
ment to analyze and moni- 
tor wastewater. The lab is 
recognized as a leader in the 
field and its services are 
made available to other 
industries, municipalities, 
engineering firms and others 
concerned with any kind of 
water analysis. 

The company has also 
taken an innovative ap- 
proach toward reducing 
pollution through reclama- 
tion techniques. A company- 


sponsored project in waste- 
water technology has 
resulted in the invention of 
a patented hyperfiltration

In addition, through 
a companywide effort,

Natchitoches' historic 
past is brought to life in 
1978 with "Louisiana

the surrounding area. 

While a student at 
NSU, take part in these

well as the university. 

Spiral Staircase 

Rides offered 

If you have been downown 
on the riverbank, you have 
probably noticed a quaint, 
Spanish-style barge tied up at 
the riverbank edge. To many 
peoples relief, this is not a 
historic relic of Natchitoches' 
earlier days nor did it belong 
to St. Denis in the 1700's. 
However, the barge is used to 
promote the historic part of 
Natchitoches. It is used 
nightly to give tours down the 
Cane River. This is sponsored 
by "Old Natchitoches Tours". 

Persons may view some of 
the historic sights of Nat- 
chitoches as well as have a 
meat pie dinner and drinks as 
you cruise. 

Winding down the beautiful 
Cane River, the barge seats 20 
people and during busy 

seasons it makes two trips a 

The "Old Natchitoches 
Tours" headquarters is also 
located on the riverbank. 
Tickets for the cruise are $6 
for adults and $4 for children. 

Group rates are available. 
This is a guided tour and 
historical information is given 
during the ride as well as 
plenty of time to relax, eat and 
view historic Natchitoches 
from Cane River. 

"Old Natchitoches Tours" 
also gives guided tours of the 
historic homes in the city of 
Natchitoches as well as the old 
plantation homes down the 
river. Information concerning 
these tours may be obtained at 
the riverbank headquarters.

NSU students returning for 
the fall semester will notice 
that there has been a change 
in the Natchitoches night life 
during the summer. This 
change includes remodeling in 
the Bunker Club, the addition 
of an entirely new club in 
Natchitoches; the Cane River 
Company, as well as several 
other area clubs expanding or 

Bunker Club 

The Bunker Club, owned 
and operated by Randy Lee, is 
located on the Hwy. 1 By-Pass 
and has been the students 
"place-to-go" for the past 
three years. Until now, the 
form at the club has remained 
the same. However, with the 
change in styles, music, and 
taste of the college students, 
Lee found it necessary to 
change the interior as well as 
the image of the club. 

"We have remodeled the 
dancing area by adding a 
mirrored ceiling, a turning 
mirrored globe, and a strobe 
light as well as featuring a 
light show and a bubble 
maching throughout the 
night," Lee stated. "We also 
painted and added a pool table 
to the game area of the club." 

Top name bands appear 
periodically at the Bunker and 
Lee plans to have more bands 
in the club this fall. Groups 
such as Pieces, Isoscles 
Popsicle, G.G. Shinn, Bill 
Wray, Vince Vance and the 
Valliants and more have 
delighted students with a 
variety of music for dancing 
and listening. When bands are 
not appearing at the Bunker, 
the latest rock and disco 
music is played. 

When groups do appear at 
the club, the bands require a 
specific amount per person at 

the door. This is usually $1.50 
during the week and $2.00 on 
weekends. The price may 
vary with the band. 

Another new dimension of 
the Bunker Club is the frozen 
drinks. Now being served are 
Margarittas and other frozen 
drinks, some with whipped 
cream on top. In addition, the 
dub serves other special 
order drinks, highballs, beer, 
and non- alcoholic beverages. 
The drinks range in price from 
$.75 to $2.00. 

The Bunker is open on 
weeknights from 5 p.m. until 2 
a.m. and on weekends fron 6 
p.m. until 2 a.m. Dress is 
casual although just as many 
"dressy clothes" are seen 
there as jeans. 

Cane River Company 

The Cane River Company is 
a totally new concept for the 
area, and promises a very 
successful future for its 
owners, Danny Collins and 
Tommy Whitehead. 

Located on the Hwy. 1 By- 
Pass next to the Holiday Inn, 
the club has been opened all 
summer and right away it has 
been a "smash hit" in Nat- 

Besides the unique decor, 
dress code, and unusual 
drinks, the Cane River 
Company has been made 
"famous" his summer by the 
show bands they have 
featured every other week. So || 
far the Cane River Company 
has featured three Las Vegas 
dance and show bands; Hi- 
Rize, Passin' Thru, and 
Lovers. These bands play 
dance music, but for about 45 
minutes every night they 
perform a floor show . These 
shows as well as the dance 
music has been first-rate and 

Night on the town 

Ergoying night life at Cane River Company are NSU students Danny 
McCowen, Terry McCarty, and Alice Ahton. 

the Natchitoches crowd has 
been very receptive to the 
dance- show idea. 

Cover charges will be $1.50 
on Tuesdays through Thur- 
sdays and $2.00 on weekends. 
This is only when bands ap- 

Monday night football will 
be shown on the large-screen, 
electronically operated 
television, followed up in the 
late hours by late movies. 
The dress code is different 

in that jeans can be worn only 
during the week and aren't 
allowed after 7 p.m. on 

The Cane River Company, 
opens in the afternoon and 
closes each night at 2 a.m. 

Other Natchitoches clubs 
include the Cajun Club, 
Clarences Lounge, Curly's 
Lounge, Zeno's 71 Club, the 
Godfather Disco, and Bayou 

That at least one major 
university is doing something 
to combat the high cost of 
attending college, and using 
loam cups to do it? 

They've switched over their 
dining operation, which 
serves 2!i,000 meals a day, 
completely to disposables- 
cups, plates, bowls, spoons, 
knives and forks.

As the dining hall manager 
says, "We throw out every- 

Ithinti but the students." 
The cost savings have come 
in several areas. Before the 
change, 350 employees were 
required to run the Univer- 


food service operation, 
only 200 are required, 
though 1,000 more 
per day are being 


when the switch

There has also been a reduc- 
tion in kitchen help turnover. 
From an annual rate of 600%, 
it's dropped to only 5'". 

Students are all in favor of 
the change. In a recent sur 
vey, the Student Food Ser- 
vice Committee listed five 
reasons why they wouldn't 
want to go back to using 
china: sanitation, cost, noise 
factor, weight and theft. 

According to the Foam Cup 
and Conla'ner Division of the 
Society of the Plastics Indus- 
try, reduction in noise has 
been the unexpected bonus 
from the change. 

Though not library-quiet, 
the dining rooms are now 
remarkably tranquil and clat- 
ter-free, a welcome oasis on 
the busy campus.

Leadership program 

NATCHITOCHES— Fifteen students 
from across the state are participating 
this fall in Northwestern State 
University's third annual President's 
Leadership Program for college fresh- 

Fred C. Bosarge, dean of students at 
NSU, said the students were awarded 
$400 scholarships to participate in 
activities designed to develop personal 
leadership abilities and to provide the 
students with a practical knowledge of 
the university's administration and 

The program participants were 
outstanding high school graduates las 
spring and were selected by a screening 
committee of administrators, students 
and faculty members. 

Bosarge stated that the Northwestern 
freshmen will participate in a special 
training program this fall which will 
prepare (hem for practical field work 
with student organizations during the 
spring semester. 

The fall training program includes 
seminar sessions covering such sub- 
jects as self-awareness, leadership and

Tours offer history to 20th century 

From the lovesick romantic to the 
History major, a tour of Historic 
Natchitoches is a student must. 

The secret lover in all of us is bound 
to fantasies as he tours the Tante Huppe 
House on 424 Jefferson St. The house 
has separate entrances from the first 
floor bedrooms. This came in handy in 
the days of yore when perhaps young 
men sneaked their lady loves into the 
house without the old folks knowing 
about it. 

The keen-minded history buffs of 

NSU might enjoy the Wells Home. The 
Wells home is one of the oldest homes in 
La. It was built in 1776 and has such 
features as walls with deer hair in 
them. The Wells Home is one of the 
most authentically restored homes in 

Yes, the charms of old Natchitoches 
are sure to stagger a stranger's mind as 
he tours the antebellum homes and 
buildings during the 24th annual tour of 
Historic Natchitoches the second 

weekend in October. This is sponsored 
by the Association for the Preservation 
of Historic Natchitoches. 

Mrs. Ora Watson, president of the 
A.P.H.N., said that the tour this year 
will be bigger than before with more 
houses being shown. 

Mrs. Watson added that "There will 
be two tours, the Town Tour and the 
Cane River Tour." 

The town tour will be a walking tour 
down Front Street seeing the old houses 

at your leisure while if boating is your 
pleasure a 25 mile boat trip down Cane 
River will satisfy your nautical and 
historical pleasure. 

Although houses are the favorite 
sight seeing pastime during the tour, 
old churches, seminaries and 
cemeteries are also offered. 

If the lovesick wanders of historical 
passion are moved by these glimpses of 
the past you may then get ready for the 

A touch of old Natchitoches 

On the second weekend in 
October, the Association for 
the Preservation of Historic 
Natchitoches hosts the 
historic tour of homes in 
Natchitoches and Cane Riverj 

This organization, the 
Calico Belles, and many 
others in Natchitoches dress 
in long, 18th century dresses 
and guide tourists through the 
old homes giving them 
historical information about 
the old homes as well as the 
families who have lived in 
them throughout the years. 

This tour of homes lasts for 
two days, Saturday and 
Sunday., but a person may 
take the in-town tour in half a 
day as well as the plantation 
tour which requires another 
half day. 

Tickets for the tour may be 
purchased the day of the tour 

at the headquarters located at 
the Lemee House at 310 Jef- 
ferson St. Student tickets are 
$5.00 with the presentation of 
an I.D. 

This year the tour will be 
held on Oct. 14-15 from 9:30 
a.m. o 5 p.m. 

Tour I, or the in-town tour, 
includes the Lemee, Laureate, 
Tante Huppe, and the Wells 
homes. Other structures in- 
clude the Trinity Episcopal 
Church, the Church of Im- 
maculate Conception, the 
Bishop Martin Museum, the 
Roque House and Ducournau 

Tour II, the Cane River 
country, includes Cherokee, 
Beau Fort, Oakland, the 
Melrose Complex and the 
Bayou Folk Museum Plan- 
tation Homes. 

The Wells Home is one of the oldest homes in Louisiana. Restored 
authentically by the Wells family, it is one of the favorite on the annual 
tour of Historic Natchitoches. 

Festival marks 52 years 

The 52nd annual Christmas 
festival in Natchitoches will 
be extended to a week-long 
celebration beginning on Nov. 
26 this year. Each day will 
present a new activity to help 
high-light what Mrs. Helen 
Wheat, in charge of the event, 
hopes will be the best festival 

Tentative plans include a 
religious service on the bank 
of Chaplain's Lake on the 
morning of Sun., Nov. 26. All 
religious denominations will 
be asked to participate. 

Along with the yearly lights 
and fireworks show, possible 
activities will be stage 
productions, an arts and 
crafts show and a walk-a-thon. 
Another hopeful addition to 
this year's festival will be a 
cajun food test with booths for 
many famous cajun chefs to 
show their wares. 

This year's Miss Merry 
Christmas is Chris Kinard 
chosen on June 10. She will 

ride in the senior parade to be 
held on Saturday afternoon, 
Dec. 2, which will also feature 
floats and bands. Earlier in 
the day, the junior parade will 
be held for the children. 
In the festival's beginning in 

1927, it was the hope of its 
originator, Max Burgdorf, to 
share his feelings of the 
yuletide season with his neigh- 
bors and friends of he city. 
Since then this feeling of joy 
has spread to the many peope

tacular annual event. 

The famous fireworks show 
was begun in 1936 when a $300 
display was presented from 
funds contributed by local 
businessmen as is still the 
case today. Since that year the 

show has grown to be valued 
at approximately $5000. This 
year's display promises to be 
bigger and better than ever. It 
will be given on Dec. 2.

only once or twice. 


Demon Football 

Northwestern State University opens 
its 1978 football season Sat. night but 
the Demons will be hoping for some 
memories of the 1977 season when they 
host Lamar University for the second 
time in two seasons. 

The Demons literally ran away from 
the Cardinals last season in taking a 43- 
win over Lamar on the way to a 4-1 
home field record and a 6-6, overall 
campaign. The Cardinals finished the 
year with a 2-9 record, but came around 
at the end of the season to hand Mc- 
Neese State a devastating 35-7 setback. 

"Lamar did a lot of improving last 
year," said NSU head coach A.L. 
Williams of the Cardinals. "Their 
record wasn't indicative of how well 
they played for most of the season. 
When we played them, we just had a 
night that we did everything right and 
they did everything wrong, and mat can 
easily happen to a team." 

Sat. nights battle will be NSU's 
second straight year to open a season at 
home, and no Demon fan will ever 
forget the 1977 opener when NSU came 
back from a 24-7 deficit in the final 
quarter to take a 28-24 victory over 
Texas-Arlington in the first game 
played in the new Harry "Rags" Turpin 

Quarterback Kenny Philibert hurled 
a school-record-tying four touchdown 
passes in that victory, and the junior 
from Shreveport will again be at the 
controls. Transfer signalcaller Rex 
Henderson, also a junior, will also 
likely make bis first NSU appearance in 
Saturdays battle. 

"We'll probably play both of our 
quarterbacks a good bit," Williams 
said. "Both are very capable passers, 
and if one person's not having a good 
night we have the other one to come in.' 

Lamar will be looking to start a new 
football era. Despite strong defensive 
teams in the past, coach Bob Fredrick's 
charges have come away with only 1-10, 
2-9 and 2-9 records over the past three 

A lack of offense has been the 
problem, and it looks much the same 
this year with only one offensive back- 
field veteran returning, flanker 
Howard Robinson. The lone lettermen 
returning in the backfleld are senior 
James Rollins and sophomore Mike 
Ellis, while Charles Behn is the likely 
starter at quarterback. 

Five starters return across the front, 
with Rick Overton at tight end, Victor 
Enard at guard, J.D. Wilkins and 
Kenny Birkes at the tackles and Bruce 
Clapp at center. Leroy Johnson, 
Tommy White and Alfred Mask will all 
see action at the wide out slots. 

There aren't as many questions 
defensively, with All-Southland Con- 
ference nose guard Matt Burnett 
heading up a corps that also includes 
end BufordThomas, linebackers Jay 
Warrick and Tommy Griffiths, cor- 
ner back Don Gordon and strong Kurt 

The Demons will open their third 
season in Turpin with an almost 
identical offensive lineup to last year's, 
with Philibert, stellar tailback Mark 
Schroeder and fullback Brett Knecht in 

A sneak preview of rising hopes for the upcoming football 
season was held at the Ash High School during the summer. 

the backfield. Mike Almond, Wyamond 
Waters and James Bennett will be the 
wide receivers alternating, and Jack 
Serpas and Pat Collins will alternate at 
tight end. 

Across the front, center Bill Johnson, 
guard Mike Maggiore and tackle Petey 
Perot are all returning starters. 

Defensively, Robert Brown, John 
Procell and transplant end David 

Wright will all man that slot, with 
tackle Willie Washington and Art 
Lancaster at nose guard the other 
returning starters up front. U.L. 
Finister returns at linebacker and 
Keith Clayton and Donnie Pistorius are 
the ones to watch in the secondary. 

Also back is Dennis Pendergraft, who 
averaged 41.0 yards per punt last year 
and scored 36 points kicking.

season opener against Lamar 
University, and head coach 
A.L. Williams is concerned 
about the readiness of his 

"It seems like such a short 
time ago that we got started 
this fall," Williams said. 
"With school opening so early 
we didn't have hardly any 
time in two-a-day practices, 
and our scrimmages have 
shown us that we've still got a 
lot of work to do." 

The Demons open their 
campaign on Sept. 9 against 
Lamar at home in "Rags" 
Turpin Stadium, where they 
have compiled an 8-2 record 
over the past two seasons. 
NSU also took an easy 43-0 win 
over Lamar at home last 

"It won't be anything like 
that this time," said Williams. 
"We did everything right and 
Lamar did everything wrong 
that night, and they're a much 
improved ball club this year. 
In fact, everybody on our 
schedule looks to be improved 
a great deal over last year." 

The Demons have already 
held two full-scale scrim- 
mages this fall, and have had 

different high and low points 
in each. "I was very pleased 
with our offensive per- 
formance our first time out," 
Williams said, "but last 
Thursday our defensive units 
looked really strong. If we can 
put mem together, we'll play 
with everybody on our 
schedule mis year." 

NSU will hold only one more 
scrimmage workout, and it 
will not be a full-scale affair. 
"There are still some things 
we want to look at," said 
Williams, "but we don't want 
to risk any big injuries before 
our opener." 

The Demons have not been 
beset with injuries so far in 
fall workouts. Sophomore 
tackle Harold Snodgrass will 
be unavailable to the squad 
this season because of a 
bernia operation, and in- 
coming freshman tackle 
Arthur Pickesn is still limited 
from a shoulder separation 
suffered in the high school all- 
star game, but beyond those 
two the squad is in excellent 

"We've got some bumps and 
bruises," Williams said, "but 
right now everybody looks like 
they'll be ready when the first 
game comes around. I'm 
hoping so, anyway."

Homecoming Court 
Election tomorrow 

Polls open tomorrow morning at 8:00 
for the voting of the 1978 Homecoming 
Court, according to Terry McCarty, 
Commissioner of Elections. Twenty 
girls, nominated by various groups and 
organizations, are included on this 
year's ballot. 

Nominated are Jerri Bagley, Rhonda 
Baham, Helene Blanker baker, Donna 
Bray, Cindy Brown, Lisa Breazeale, 
Denese Byram, Kelly Crowell, Sheila 
Credeur, Betty Ford, Camille Gladney, 
Margaret Hennigan, Helen Hubley, 
Laura Jenkins, Kathy Kees, Debbie 
Price, Dana Roth, Sadie Scott, Velma

"I am very pleased with the 
nominees," stated McCarty, "Because 
each girl has shown pride in Nor- 
thwestern and is very deserving of the 
honor of being a member of our 
Homecoming Court." 

"There has been an abundance of 
enthusiasm already put into this 
election, and I am looking forward to 
one of the best voter turnouts in a long 
time. I would like to urge every NSU 
student to vote tomorrow," continued 

The election will take place in the 
Northwestern Student Union on the 
second floor. Students will be asked for 
ID'S before being allowed to vote. 
Voting will be by paper ballot. 

"Due to the city and state elections 
this weekend, we were unable to secure 
voting machines. However we will have 
machines next week when voting for 
class senators." McCarty stated. 
Deadline for filing in that election is 
12:00 tomorrow. 

A lot of planning has gone into this 
year's Homecoming game, as it has 
with the entire football program. 

Homecoming and External Affairs. 

Student participation is being 
stressed in this year's events planned 
for NSU by the External Affairs Office. 

The office, headed by Ray Carney, 
serves as a public relations office for 
the university. It also controls the 
Alumni Association and the NSU 
Foundation which handles con- 
tributions to the university. The Special 
Projects Committee helps to plan 
parties when local legislators visit the 
campus. The External Affairs depart- 
ment also plan Alumni parties for each 
f ootball game. 

The event demanding the most at- 
tention of the office at this time is 
Homecoming weekend which will 
feature the NSU Demons against the 
McNeese Cowboys in the New Harry 
"Rags" Turpin Stadium on Saturday, 
Sept. 23, at 7:30 p.m. 

Homecoming events will begin with 
the "Big Banner" Parade on Friday, 
Sept. 22 at 6 p.m. Student clubs and and 
organizations are urged to enter 
banners in the banner contest. 
Monetary prizes will be awarded. The 
parade will proceed from the NSU 
campus down Front Street to the 
Riverbank. A pep rally and street 
dance, with music by "Pieces" will 

Saturday's festivities will be 
highlighted by an afternoon open house 
and tours of the campus. 

Presentation of the Homecoming 
Court will be at half-time of the football 
game. A post-game concert by the NSU 
Demon Marching Band in the stadium 
is also scheduled. 

Later in the year a reception is 
planned in Arlington, Texas for NSU 
boosters and Alumni from the area 
when the Demons play the University of 
Texas at Arlington. 

University Police 
in new location 

The last days of the summer session 
brought a change to Northwestern 's 
University Police as the officers moved 
Sheir headquarters to the front section 
of the Infirmary building. 

According to James K. Lee., chief of 
University Police, the new location is 
larger and more well-equipped than the 
older building and will enable the police 
force to better serve the university 

Chief Lee has been a member of the 
force since the campus security 

program began in 1955. In the early 
years of the program, the officers and 
student officers dealt with mainly 
parking control and building security. 

When the Louisiana State Legislature 
dissolved the campus security forces on 
Louisiana college campuses in the 
early 1970's, the University Police 
Force became the campus law en- 
forcement agency. The transformation 
from campus security to University 
Police resulted in the organization 
employing more qualified police of- 

ficers, including those with college 

Twelve Civil Service men and five 
non-Civil Service student officers serve 
on the university Police force. Trie 
officers occasionally work with other 
area law enforcement agencies. 

Lee stated that the University police 
are anxious to do their part to help 
make NSU a great university. 

"If people in the university com- 
munity have comments or suggestions f 
r the University Police, we would like to 
hear from mem," Lee concluded. 

Off -campus students 
to be reviewed 

by Jerry Jones 

In the first week of school 103 men 
and 90 women did not report to claim 
the rooms they had reserved for this 
semester. While some of the students 
did not claim their rooms because they 
aren't in school, others are living off 
campus in violation of the Board of 
Trustee's policy requiring on-campus 
residency for all single undergraduate 

To solve this problem an Off Campus 
Housing Committee will be formed and 
the list of students not in the dormitory 
will be compared with the list of 
students enrolled in classes. 

The purpose of this committee will be 
to make decisions on a case-by-case 
basis, on student applications to live off 
campus. This committee will be 
composed of a chairman, this being the 

Director of Student Services, two 
faculty members, one staff member, 
and four student members. 

A Housing Appeal Board will also be 
formed for those students who have 
their applications disapproved and feel 
they have grounds for appeal.

Banner Contest: 
Junior High again? 

It seems to be the same thing 
every year. 

Homecoming comes along. 
"They announce some kind of 

Spirit contest. Sometimes it is a 
oat, sometimes a display. 
This year it's a banner. There's 
always a grand first prize, and 
whoever has the best one, 
whether it's good or not, 

Big Deal. 

I think it is a big deal, 
although sometimes I think I'm 
on e of the few. No, I am not 
going to preach on apathy (I 
don't have the energy to fight 
mat one right now) I would like 
to talk to those students who 
plan to enter the contest. 

We are now university 
students. We are supposed to 
have educated and mature 
minds. So why is it that in the 
four years I have been here that 
I have yet to see a really out- 
standing or creative idea ftr 
Homecoming? Why have we 
never had a decent intelligent 
entry in these contests? Why do 
ae settle for Junior High level 

Please do not misunderstand 
me— I will be the first to admit 
that the problem is 
widespread— and I am as much 
a part of it as anyone else. I am 
a member of an organization 
who won the contest last year, 
and I felt it was lacking in 
quality even then— I will be the 
first to help take the blame. 

After going to a large North 
Louisiana high school, I was 
used to going all out for 
Homecoming floats, etc. and I 
was appalled to come to North- 
western and see the Mickey 

Mouse entries in what should be 
the highlight of the football 
season. Think about it: I'll bet 
most people would have o 
admit that their high school 
homecoming projects were 
much, much more impressive 
than any they have seen here in 

It's a difficult problem, and 
one that few people will admit 
to. We gripe about how 
ev ere thing at LSU and Tech is 
so much more advanced but we 
never place the blame where it 
really belongs: ON OUR 
shoulders. These homecoming 
projects are simply an 
example. If organizations will 
really put some thought (and 
work) into these banners, we 
can have the kind of quality we 
find so disgusting (?!) in the 
other schools. And by 
remaining constant with this 
quality, we can in a short time, 
regain the respect we seem to 
have lost in the face of the other 
state schools. We can again 
become the leader instead of 

We have the confidence we 
need to tackle this problem. Dr. 
Bienvenu and his ad- 
ministration have stated it over 
and over again. Let's show

Enthusiasm high 
for KNWD-FM 

The KNWD Bill that passed 
the Student Government 
Association Senate last week 
was the culmination of an effort 
that began last spring to 
provide a permanent and stable 
organizational structure for the 
campus radio station. 

It is encouraging to see the 
reaction by the existing radio 
staff this semester to the 
reorganization efforts. The 
Radio station has made a 
noticeable change in 
programming to align itself 
with the wishes of the majority 
of the student body. KNWD's 
efforts to help raise funds for 
Muscular Dystrophy have 
given leadership to a campus 
that is Committed to suppor- 
ting worthy charities and 

KNWD is a station that the 
student body can look to with 
pride. It is hoped that during 
the upcoming weeks when the 
new Broadcasting Committee 
meets to decide on the new staff 
structure and members, that 
the current spirit and dedicated 

effort of the radio staff will 

This university is continuing 
on a path where the goal is a 
desire for excellence on every 
level of the campus hierarchy . 
Each member of the university 
must commit himself per- 
sonally to excellence, and each 
campus group must make this 
same committment. KNWD 
has come a long way in a short 
time toward reaching its 
potential and faces a bright 
future in playing an en- 
tertainment and educational 
role in the life of each Nor- 
thwestern student. 

The new structure of KNWD 
provides that any student can 
apply for the position of 
General Manager of KNWD 
who meets the qualifications. 
To apply for this position, one 
must write a letter of intent to 
Dean of Students, Fred Bosarge 
by Friday, Sept. 22, at 4:30. 
Letters must be received in his 
office (3rd floor, Student 
Union) by that time.

Dear Editor: 

After three years of attendance at N.S.U., all of which hav< 
been spent as a full time student living in the dorm, I 
inclined to break away momentarily from my character!*!, 
state of "apathy." 

I have watched with interest as campus controversy rage, 
on over tired Issues. Beer on campus, fee increases, rag| 
equality and student apathy seen to remain of primary fcj, 
portance. From my point of view, much has been said bq 
little changed. 

With the new administration, however, for the first time li 
years people are taking an interest in the progress of No] 
be impeded if one major point of conflict is not resolved. 

In solving any problem, all factors must be taken lot 
consideration. But because of a consistent tendency of tq 
Current Sauce to print the opinions of one side of this issue, 
majority of students are being misjudged. 

The issue is "apathy," and according to the accept* 
school-wide definition, roughly 90 percent of the student bod 
has been placed in this highly criticized category. Apparent] 
if one is not active in student governing associations and-< 
Greek Organizations, to some this reflects a weakness < 
lack of intelligence. 

After all, as Dr. Bienvenu has repeatedly emphasized, tij 
primary importance of the university lies in academic. 
While student leadership is indispensable to the function 
the school, it is not the only consideration. 

If one is to function effectively, priorities must be set, wi 
some sort of focus maintained. The "apathetic" are hen 
and contrary to popular belief most are contributing in son 
way to society. They are also enjoying themselves, althouj 
their activities tend to be spontaneous instead of high 

Everyone has a basic need to express himself. I realize th 
organizational involvement fulfills hours painting a pictui 
writing a research paper, or participating in a play is a] 
fulfilling that need. Although the medium is different, be 
groups have a common ground, that of personal satisf actlc 

This letter is not an attack or criticism, because I belle; 
that there has been too much condemnation on everyoni 
part. It is only a request for open -mindedn ess . I can only ha 
people will realize that no one is qualified to make sweepl 
character judgments about anyone. 

If there is a sincere desire for people to become involve 
rganization leaders should stop trsing to force the studi 
body into a specified mold. 

In dealing with people, it is much more rewarding

Dear Editor,

The application deadline for living off 
campus will be set at six weeks prior to 
the beginning of the semester, within 
two weeks therby giving the student a 
month planning time as to where he or 
she is living. It has been recommedned 
by Frederick C. Bosarge, Dean of 
Student s, that studetns who fail to 
comply with the committee's decision 
not to be processed through the 
University Discipline Committee. 
Instead they would be handled as an 
administrative probem and simply 
have the*? registration cancelled. 

The main target of the increased 
enforcement of the on-campus living 
policy will be toward the new students. 
In the case of continuing students 
whohave been living off campus for 
some time and have complications, 
such as apartment leases, the com- 
mittee will take into account the time 
needed to adjust to the new conditions. 

Students having questions regarding 
the policy of off campus living should 
contact the office of the Director of 
Student Services, located on the third 
floor of the Student Union. 

Mrs. McNeely then took me into her office where she a

and suggested what alternatives I could consider. Wbt 
made the decision to seek a loan, she then sat down with

NSU's chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists, 
Sigma Delta Chi, has conducted a survey which shows that 
most Louisiana district attorneys are opposed to allowing 
cameras inside the courtroom. 

The Journalistic society conducted the survey a few months 
after the Louisiana Supreme Court granted a request for the 
use of still and television cameras in Judge Guy Humphries' 
Ninth Judicial District court in Alexandria. The Supreme 
Court acted on a petition by the Judge, a local television 
newsman and an Alexandria newspaper photo Journalist. 

Sixteen of the state's 37 district attorneys responded to the 
survey, and most agreed that the presence of still and 
televison cameras in courtrooms would interfere with. the 
administration of Justice. They also believed that trial 
participants would "act" for television cameras. 


Fifteen students from across the state are participating 
this fall in NSU's third annual President's Leadership 
Program for college freshmen. 

Fred C. Bosarge, dean of students at NSU, said the 
students were awarded $400 scholarships to participate in 
activities designed to develop personal leadership abilities to 
provide the students with a practical knowedge of the 
university's administration and operation. 

Bosarge stated that NSU freshmen will participate in a 
special training program this fall which will prepare them 
for practical field work with student organizations during the 
spring semester. 

NSU is the only university in Louisiana and one of the few 
institutions in thesouth that offers a program to recognize the 
leadership abilities in superior incoming freshmen. 


Dr. Richard H. Galloway, a faculty member at NSU for the 
past 17 years, has been appointed dean of the new University 
College at NSU. 

As university College dean, Galloway will administer the 
operation of NSU's campus at Ft. Polk. He will also be 
responsible for freshman orientation, vocational counseling, 
counseling and testing, and for the advising of students in the 
university's general curriculum and general studies 

NSU president Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu said the appointment 
of Galloway as dean of the recently created University 
College will become effective immediately. 

NSU's Cheerleader squad won four superior and three 
excellent ratings during the annual universal Cheerleaders 
Association College Spirit Camp held recently in Memphis, 

The NSU cheerleaders received superior ratings in the 
categories of home cheer, sideline chant, semi-final 
evaluation, and final cheer. Excellent ratinas were won in 
creative cheer, pom-pom routine and camp cheer. The NSU 
group was also presented the "Key to Spirit" award. 

NSU's cheerleader squad was among the 10 university 
cheerleader teams selected to compete in the camp's 
cheering finals. The University of Southern Mississippi won 
the top award in the finals. 


The state's first university-sponsored infant laboratory 
opened this fall at NSU to assist infants with different phases 
of their development and to provide a foundation for NSU's 
child development program. 

The new infant laboratory represents the beginning of 
comprehensive child development studies which NSU 
educational researchers believe will lead them to a better 
understanding of the importance of a child's first three years 
of life. 

Dr. Cedle C. Mielenz, professor and chairman of the 
Department of Home Economics at NSU, said she and other 
faculty members studied and visited infant programs across 
the country for two years before developing the new 
laboratory at NSU.

"How wonderfully 
disgusting!" "Delightfully 
perverse!" "Such sick 
titillation ! "— Is it this 
month's issue of PLAYBOY? 

Lampoon's recent movie 
release, is grabbing its 
audiences with Toga mania, 
Deathmobile ventures, and 
various outrageous acts of 
1962 Faber College Life. 

In keeping with National 
Lampoon's singular 
reputation as a caterer to the 
offbeat side of human ex- 
perience, ANIMAL HOUSE 
recounts a fall semester in the 
lives of members of the Delta 
Tau Chi fraternity and their 

fantasy land of the grotesque 
side of a collegiate's mind. 
Members of the Delta Tau Chi 
fraternity participate in such 
antics as initiating a cafeteris 

food fight, having a wild 
Roman toga party while on 
campus probation, descending 
upon an all black bar, and 
entering a tasteless, yet 
hilarious float in the annual 
homecoming parade. 

The only comparable ex- 
perience in the lives of present 
day college students might be 
a visit to the DKE House at 

John Belushi, as Bluto, 
gives the most memorable 
performance. His highjinks 
run the gaunt from crushing 
beer cans against his head to 
spitting food on the college's 
"upper -crust" students. 

Excellent portrayals were 
given by Thomas Hulce as the 
innocent le pledge Pinto, Tim 
Matheson as the smooth 
playboy Otter (or Eric 
Stratton), and Donald 
Sutherland as the 'hip' 
Professor Jennings. 

Stephen Bishop composed 
and sang the title song 
"Animal House," while Elmer 
Bernstein wrote the 
remaining music. 

Although there are some 
violent scenes and some 
suggestive acts and in- 
nuendos, on its entire merit 
the movie is great. 

was rarely known outside the 
Appalachia region as it was 
produced strictly by individu- 
al mountain folk. In the 60's, 
though still produced by hand, 
larger groups which included 
such well-known recording 
artists as James Taylor and 
Judy Collins, began to use the 
dulcimer in their work. 

"Today", as Dr. Bryant so 
aptly put it, "the reason the 
dulcimer is so popular, other 
than being simple to play, I 
would estimate that there are 
probably 15 or 20 universities 
which include craft courses on 
the dulcimer which combine a 
unique application of crafts 
skill building, creative design, 
music theory, and American 
folk culture studies." 

"In the course at Nor- 
thwestern, each student is 
given an overall concept of 
how the instrument must 
function and background 
which is applicable to the 
construction of string in- 
struments in general. Then, 
based upon his own preference 
of design, sound, and playing 
peculiarities, he must create 
an instrument unique to 

The course presently con- 
centrates onthe dulcimer, its 
history, construction, and 
playing. Based on student 
request, however, the course 
could be expanded to include 
other types of string in- 

Dr. Bryant is additionally 
conducting an experimental 
program with third, fourth, 
and fifth grade students and 
their teachers in three local 
elementary schools. There , 
the students constructs card- 
board facsimiles of the 
dulcimer which during the 
course of the year will be 
coordinated with their studies 

of American History, 
mathematics in the com- 
putation of scales and notes, 
basic music theory, crafts 
skills, and creative design in

Record Review 

Louisiana's LeRoux 
gets in the groove 

Finally a Louisiana group 
has cut an album that exempli- 
fies the fusion between New 
Orleans jazz and good rock 
and roll. The group, 
Louisiana's LeRoux, has 
made it commercial enough 
that the rest 
f the country might "get in the 

The group revolves around 
Jeff Pollard and bassist- 
producer Leon Medica. As a 
matter of fact, the group used 
to be known as the Jeff Pollard 
Griup and Played in Nat- 
chitoches on occasion. 

As for the record, vocal 
harmonies (and excellent ones 
at that) dominate the album. 
Jeff Pollard takes most of the 
lead vocals and is more than 

capable. This talent is evident 
in their hit song, "New 
Orleans Ladies." 

The instrumentation of 
LeRoux is second to none. All 
the guys have an opportunity 
to "show off" a little. This 
group appears to have one of 
the best bass-drum units 
around. As a whole, the group 
blends and works well 

The musical style of the 
Louisiana groups can only be 
described as, none other than, 
New Orleans JazzRock. Even 
many of the lyrics suggest the 
Delta country. 

A few of the best cuts from 
the album are "New Orleans 
Ladies," "Take a Ride on a 
Riverboat", and "Bridge of

New Officials Named 


creation complex 

Nolan joins 
sports staff 

"I'm very enthusiastic and excited about my job," stated a 
bubbly Pat Nolen in a recent interview. "I know it's a 
tremendous challenge, but I'm willing to work nard to 
overcome it." 

Nolen has recently joined the Northwestern Athletic Staff 
as the head Women's Basketball Coach and Coordinator of 
Women's Athletics. 

The biggest problem facing the new Lady Demon coach is 
that the team will be young, and "as usual, short." Coach 
Nolen has two six foot recruits, in additon to the returning 
players, that will help on the height of the team. 

Coach Nolen said that this year was going to be a "gradual 
building process," as far as changes are concerned. She is 
going to have a wide range of recruiting done for the 79-80 
women's team. 

"I want to improve the image of theLady Demon basket- 
ball team," Coach Nolen said. "Hopefully, I can create the 
type of program that would make the students proud of the 
team and want to come out and support it." The coach is 
going in the job with enthusiasm and excitement enough to 
get the students aroused and in good school spirit. 

Coach Nolen said, "I really want to build a family at- 
mosphere for the team." This helps the team's performance, 
as well as the image of the team the student's give them. 

In the 1978-79 season, come out and support the Lady 
Demons, and be proud. Northwestern needs the student 
support behind their athletes.

Parrish new 
In tram mural 

As the athletic program at NSU enthusiastically awaits the 
beginning of a new season, so does the Intrammural 
Competition for 1978-79. This year, however; there will be a 
change-up in the Intrammural roster. Northwestern State 
University is proud to announce the addition of Miss. Ginger 
Sue Parrish, Director of Intrammural Sports, to the faculty 
line up. 

Miss. Parrish, with a Masters of Education (M.AEd.) 
from East CKAROLINA University, staes that, "the success 
of this years Intrammural program will depend entirely on 
the enthusiasm and participation of NSU students." With 
such goals as, "meeting the needs of as many students as 
possible," Miss. Parrish feels that one does not need to be a 
highly skilled athlete to participate in upcoming events. All 
that is necessary is a desire for fun and activity. 

Assisting Miss. Parrish will be Danny Cage of Jonesboro 
and Mike Posillico of New York, both graduate assistants in 
Physical Education. The athletic trio of Parrish, Cage and 
Posillico are looking forward to working with the students in 
such events as Co-Ed Softball to Rifle Shooting and Tug-of- 
War to Free Throw. 

As an added attraction to this years schedule of events, pl- 
ans are being made for such activities as Almost Anything 
Goes, Varied Frisbee Competition, and even one on one 

"I don't know what was here before, dut I am here to help 
and more than happy to talk to anyone with ideas or 
suggestions for the betterment of the Intrammural Depart- 
ment," says Miss. Parrish. Also, in conjunction with the 
Intrammural Staff, appointments are being made in for- 
mation of an Intrammural Advisory Council. The Advisory 
Council is stated as having the power to finalize all protests, 
pass judgment on disciplinary procedures, and any other 
problems which might arise throughout the year. 

As the Advisory Council assumes its position, it is urged 
that at least one representative from each sorority, frater- 
nity, dorm club, etc., be present. This meeting will serve as a 
purpose of discussing present as well as foreseeable 
problems of Intrammural athletics. Also, t e meetings will 
allow the students to become acquainted with the In- 
trammural Staff as well as having a voice in future In- 
trammural planning. 

For any planned event to be successful, it requires direct 
planning, personal interest, and mainly, participation by 
those involved. With this in mind, it is now up to the student 
body of NSU to make 1978-79 the best year of Intrammural 
participation ever known to Northwestern's campus. 

Again wih competitive feelings in mind, Miss. Parrish 
states, "I would personally like to wish all students that do 
plan to participate in this years activities, the best of luck,. I 
look forward in working and meeting as many of the students 
as my responsiblitles will allow. If at any time I or my staff 
can be of assistance to you as the student body, please feel 
free to contact me at the Office of Intrammural Sports, Room 
12, located in the Old Men's Gym. Good Luck and here's to a 
winning season for all."

Demon 9 split 

Daryl Keowen's two-run 
single in the bottom of the 
sixth inning proved to be the 
difference Saturday afternoon 
as Northwestern State 
University took a 5-4 win over 
Centenary College in the 
second game of a baseball 
doubleheader here. 

The visiting Gentlemen had 
earlier taken a 9-2 victory over 
the Demons in the opener, 
which was the first outing of 
the season for both teams. 

Keowen's single drive home 
Danny Goode and Tommy 
Dorsey in the sixth to give 
Chris Soileau the victory, 
while Jordan Stasney ab- 
sorbed the loss. 

In the opener, Centenary's 
Glynn Bankard poked a solo 
homer in the third inning, but 
by that time the Gents were 
already out front by 6-1. Ken 
Babcock was the winner while 

Kenny Stelly picked up the 
loss. Bill Land had a solo 
homer for the Demons.

to be ashamed of 

Ricardo Acuna 

Even if he was knocked out 
of competition in the first 
round of the U. S. Open Tennis 
Championships, Ricardo 
Acuna has nothing to be 
ashamed of. 

Acuna, Northwestern State 
University's tennis star from 
Santiago, Chile, was defeated 
by Hank Pfister of Baker- 
sfield, Cal., 6-0, 6-3, in Wed- 
nesday's first round of men's 
singles in the Open, currently 
in progress at the National 
Tennis Center in New York. 

The more significant ac- 
complishment, though, is that 
the senior standout made the 
Open field at all. The bracket 
for the Open contains only 128 
players, and they are 
generally recognized as the 
world's finest players. 

"I'm thrilled that Ricardo 
made the field up there," said 
Northwestern tennis coach 
Johnnie Emmons. "Not too 
many playersfrom this state 
have ever taken part in te U. 
S. Open, especially when they 
were still amateurs in 

Acuna qualified for the Open 
by accumulating enough 
points in professional tour- 
naments during the summer 
on the American Express 
Summer Tour. The 5-foot-9 
star won one of the tour- 
naments at Hilton Head 
Island, S. C, during the three- 
month period and played well 
enough to reach the finals of a 
special tournament for 

summer winners on the 
American Express Tour. 

"I didn't even find out he 
had made the main draw until 
he called me Tuesday night," 
Emmons said, "and I was 
somewhat surprised. 
Ricardo's a trememdous 
player, but only the best 
players in the world make the 
field for the Open." 

Acuna had already proved 
himself as one of the best 
players in theSouth over the 
past three years. He is the 
reigning Louisiana Open 
champion and will be 
defending that title beginning 
this weekend in Shreveport 

Acuna sported a 24-5 singles 
record last season, with three 
of those losses coming in in- 
door competition. He also was 
the no. 1 singles champion in 
theSouthern Arkansas 
Tournament last season. In 
previous seasons, Acuna had 
compiled marks of 25-3 and 26- 
7 in dual match play. 

With Acuna helping lead the 
way, Northwestern's tennis 
team has compiled records of 
24-1, 22-1, and 16-2 over the 
past three seasons in dual 
match play. Even more 
amazing, the Demon netters 
have won 41 consecutive home 
court matches and 51 of thier 
last 52, and they have won an 
incredible 47 straight dual 
matches against Louisiana 
opponents during those past 
three seasons.

Lamar's Johnny Ray White seems to be having a bit of trouble. Satur-

lost five of the fumbles but managed to hang on in a close one 21-17.

Demons Take Close 
One 21-17 

The Demons opened the 78 season 
with an exciting 21-17 victory over 
Lamar Saturday night in Turpin 
Stadium. A rain plagued first half 
resulted in numerous fumbles and 
dropped passes for both teams, but the 
arial attack of Kenny Philibert, 
Wyamond Waters, Mike Almond, and 
Joe Delaney along with the running of 
Mark Schroeder, Brett Knecht, and 
Delaney proved to much for the Car- 
dinals as the Demons posted their first 
victory of the year. 

The first score of the game came on 
the Demons third possession as Mark 
Schroeder went 5 yards on a sweep 
around the right side to score standing 
up. Dennis Pender grafts PAT was no 
good and the Demons led 6-0. Philibert 
completed three passes, one to James 
Bennett for 18 yards, as the offense 
moved 40 yards in 6 plays for the score. 

Pigskin swapping was the name of 
the game as Art Lancaster bounced on 
a Lamar fumble at Lamar 21 yard line. 
The next play Johnny Smith picked off 
a Philibert pass to give Lamar the ball 
on their 23 yard line. Just two plays 
later Willie Washington accepted the 
pigskin from Lamar's quarterback, 
Charles Behn, on the 19 yard line to set 
up the second Demon score. On the 
fourth play, Joe Delaney went up the 
middle for two yards and the score. 
Philibert's pass to Schroeder for the 
two point conversion made it 14-0 NSU. 
It looked as though last year's 43-0 
whipping of the Cardinals was about to 
be repeated. The "Tasmanian Devils," 
playing surpurb defense, held the 
Dardinals to 15 yards in 13 plays and no 
first downs. The "Devils" stopped the 
Cardinals on their next two possessions 
forcing a punt that gave the Demon 
offense the ball on NSU 4 yard line. The 
Demons could muster no offense and 
Pender graft was forced to punt from 
deep in the end zone. A low snap and a 
slippery ball proved fatal as Pen- 
der graft's fumble was recovered by 
Juan Taylor for a Lamar touchdown. 
Mike Marlow's PAT was good and the 
Cardinals closed the gap 14-7. 

The wet pigskin struck again about 
two minutes later as Mark Schroeder 
fumbled on the NSU 17 yard line and 
Johnny Smith recovered it for Lamar. 
The recovery set up a 30 yard field goal 
by Mike Marlow to end the first half 
with the Demons leading 14-10. 

Five turnovers, two of which set up 
Lamar-scores, helped keep what 
seemed to be a lopsided game close. 
The Demon offense moved the ball at 
will while the "Devil" defense kept the 
Cardinals caged for the first half. 

A 27 yard pass from Philibert to 
Delaney capped an 80 yard 10 play 
drive to open the second half. Pen- 
der graft's PAT topped off the nights 
scoring for the Demons. The final score 
of the game was a 23 yard touchdown 
pass from Lamars Larry Haynes to 
Tommy White all along on the right side 
to end the scoring with the Demons on 
top 21-17. 

Philibert had an excellent game 
hitting 12 of 18 passes for 162 yards, 
Schroeder lead the games top rushers 
with 65 yards on 27 carries, Delaney 
added 47 yards on 9 carries, and Brett 
Knecht powered for 45 yards on 14 
carries. The Demon offense had a super 
night with a tally of 323 yards and 15 
first downs. 

Credit must be given to the off ese line 
who did more man their share to ac- 
count for the 323 net yards and the 
defense backs who played a large part 
in holding Lamar to 3 completions on 15 
attempts in the passing department. 




Kenny Philibert takes a spin around the right side for a 12 yard gain after 
being forced out of the pocket Sat. night. Philibert completed 12 of 18 
passes for 162 yards and 1 touchdown as he lead NSU's offensive attack 
against Lamar. 

The Demons are on the road this 
Saturday, Sept. 16 when they battle 
Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches, 
Texas. The fight for "Chief Caddo" will 
get underway at 7:30 in Lumberjack 

Prather Coliseum has been home for 
the "Chief" (a large wooden Indian) 
the past two years. Last year the 
Demons won the right to keep the 
"Chief by whipping the Lumberjacks 

20-6 in Turpin Stadium. Kenny Philibert 
threw two touchdown passes, one to 
James Bennet for 36 yards and the 
other to Mike Almond for 29 yards, and 
Dennis Pender graft added field goals of 
40 and 46 yards to lead the Demons in 
last year win. 

This will be the thirty fifth meeting 
between the Demons and the Jacks with 
NSU leading the series 23-9-2. SFA will 
be coming into Saturday nights contest

CONGRESS ADOPTS BUDGET— Congress adopted a 1979 
budget Saturday which calls for $487.5 billion in spending and 
a $38.8 billion deficit— the lowest in five years. Sen. Edmund 
Muskie, D.-Maine, said the reduced deficit was due partly to 
"deliberate congressional action to cut back on new 
programs." According to another senator, a balanced budget 
may be possible before 1983. 

CARTER CUTS PLO— Comparing the Palestine Liberation 
Organization to the Ku Klux Klan, the Nazi Party, and the 
Communist Party, President Carter said Saturday "it would 
be nice for us if they would just go away." Carter made the 
statement at a town meeting in Pittsburgh after being asked 
why the PLO has an informational office in Washington. The 
president explained that many organizations "obnoxious to 
us" still have the "right to free speech in America so long as 
they don't pose a threat to the nation's security."

FLUIDS MAY BE ENERGY SOURCE— Fluids circulating 
deep in the Earth's crust are at temperatures high enough to 
be tapped as energy source according to Dr. Nikolas 
Christiansen, a U.S. investigator on a deep drilling project 
carried out this summer in Iceland. Dr. Christiansen said the 
drillers found fluids with a temperature of 175 degrees 
Fahrenheit in the rocks at the 6,330 foot level.

was outstanding with the banner 
contest, the pep rally, and the street 
dance. The stree dance was fan-

Page 2 CURRENT SAUCE Tuesday, September 26, 1978 


You asked for it, 
you got it 


It's amazing how rude some 
people can be. 

Last week, because of 
misunderstandings and 
unavailability, I was unable to 
print a certain campaign 
statement, for a freshman 
senator candidate. There was a 
fifty word limit on the 
statements and this particular 
statement had approximately 
175 words. It was written in a 
way that to edit it would mean 
to rewrite it completely, and I 
could not do that without the 
permission of the individual. 

So, it was telephone time. I 
called and called and I could 
never get anyone home. When 
deadline came on Monday I had 
no other choice but to delete the 
statement, although the can- 
didate's picture was printed. 

It is true that some of the 
other candidates statements 
were longer than fifty words. 
This was not an observation of 
my own (I don't personally 
have the time to count every 
word that goes into CURRENT 
SAUCE) but of the candidate 
who did personally count each 
word of every statement. I 
must admit this point was 
valid, but unfortunately, the 
other statements were not 
brought to my attention. This 
one was, because it was so 
obviously long. 

I could honestly understand 
the candidate's concern What I 
couldn't understand was their 
totally uncalled for rudeness. 
On Tuesday evening, they 
called me three times, one of 
my staff members once, and 
Terry McCarty, Commissioner 
of Elections, once. Terry and I 
both tried our best to be polite, 
fair, and compromising. I 
suggested that they type a 
campaign statement and post 
it, with their picture, on the 
election board the day of the 
electioa Terry agreed that this 
could be done. They hung up on 

me twice, on Terry once, 
practically called me a liar 
(they insisted that I had not 
tried to phone them the 
previous week when I gave 
them concrete evidence that I 
had) , and they hung up on my 
staff member. In our final 
conversation, the candidate 
adamently demanded an 
apolory from me and my staff, 
and when I told them that I had 
already planned to give them 
one, they again all but called 
me a liar. That was the last 
straw. I told them yes, that they 
would have their apology all 
right, but that I couldn't be sure 
they would like it. 

And to be quite honest I don't 
know if they will. For, in spite 
of the fact that I am sincerely 
sorry that the misun- 
derstanding occurred, I am 
also quite convinced that it 
couldn't have happend to a 
ruder person. I know I am not 
perfect but I might add that no 
one else is either, and I find it 
hard to swallow when a fresh- 
men calls me a liar, tells me 
off, and tries to contest an 
election, on no concrete 

I am going to withhold the 
candidate's name at this point, 
because under the cir- 
cumstances I don't think they 
would want it printed. If they 
do, I will comply. 

One last point to be made. 
The Commissioner of Elections 
has nothing at all to do with 
campaign statements printed in 
the CURRENT SAUCE. Nor do 
the elections themselves. The 
CURRENT SAUCE is involved 
(free, I might add) only as a 
service to the candidates, so 
that they may have the op- 
portunity to "speak" to NSU. 
So my apology is not f 
r SGA or the Elections Board. 
They do not owe one. I suggest 
that the opposite is true. But 
here is your apology, however 
demanded, sincere. "

gains film 

A Northwestern State University senior from Shreveport is 
gaining experience in film -making by working with the NSU 
Television Center in the production of three films for the L- 
ouisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries. 

Since last spring, Mark Cottrell— who desires to become an 
independent film-maker— has been capturing on film graphic 
scenes designed to show the public the importance of lake 
management, saltwater fishing and wildlife and fisheries 

The Northwestern student, who has done most of the fi- 
lming for the projects, has eaten everything from peanut but- 
ter sandwiches to escargot on his assignments and has 
traveled by airboat, charter boat, elicopter and airplane 
since becoming involved in the making of films at NSU. 

Thomas N. Whitehead, producer-director of t e NSU Te- 
levision Center, said Cottrell is putting classroom knowledge 
to practical use. "I have become so confident in Mark," he 
said, "that he will be going out on his own and will no longer 
require a director to accompany him on film assignments." 

Cottrell was a student assistant at NSU last spring and was 
employed by Whitehead this summer as assistant director 
for the filming projects, which are being funded through a 
grant the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries 
received from a Rockefeller Foundation trust fund for 
wildlife education. 

The NSU student has filmed throughout the state and off- 
shore in the Gulf of Mexico. He has captured on film speckled 
trout fishing off the Chandeleur Islands, commercial crab- 
bing on Lake Theriot, turkey hunting at Fort Polk, the 
opening of dove season in Oak Grove, the Labor Day Boat 
Races in Morgan City, tagging of saltwater trout near Lake 
Charles and hybrid breeding of striped bass on Toledo Bend 

A certified scuba diver, Cottrell will soon travel some 100 
miles out into the Gulf of Mexico where he will do underwater 
filming of the "flower gardens," which is the only natural 
reef in Louisiana waters. 

"This is a valuable experience for me," said Cottrell, 
"because I want to go into some area of communications, 
such as independent film-making. I have met some in- 
teresting people and have been to places most people will 
never have an opportunity to go." 

As part of the lake management film being produced by 
NSU, Cottrell spent some time on Lake Salvador near New 
Orleans. He was there to document the spraying of fouchet, 
an acquatic plant that grows in the marshes and produces a 
burr which can damage the pelt of the nutria. 

Although there is pleasure in Cottrell's work, there is also 
an element of danger in some of the duties that he performs. 

"On one trip to Grand Isle," said Cottrell, "I had to be 
secured with a gunner's strap so I could hang outside a U. S. 
Coast Guard helicopter to film the 'rip,' which is the area 
. where the brown or dirty water of the Mississippi River joins 
the blue water of the Gulf of Mexico. 

"We were doing this segment for the saltwater film. People 
Jell us tfiis is the best place for fishing, because the larger 
fish} such as sailfish and marlin, often school at the 'rip.' 
"During the time I was hanging out of that helicopter, I 
r&lly wasn't worried. I was a little apprehensive at first, but 
e I soon dismissed any uneasiness because I had confidence in 
the. people Who took responsibility for my safety." 
Many of Cottrell's working days have been long, like the 
day when he was a passenger for more than 14 hours on the 
"Sailfish," a charter boat participating in the Grand Isle 
Tarpon Rodeo, i 

"The boat was no larger than a 30-footer, and we were 
riding 10-foot seas that day," said Cottrell. "It was a rough 
experience. Water was breaking over the flying bridge, and 
for about eight hours that day I was on top of the boat looking 
down through my camera and waiting for someone to bring a 
big fish to the surface." 

The Northwestern student also encountered some unique 
experiences while filming segments for the film on wildlife 
and fisheries agents. 

"On one of our trips to Baton Rouge," he said, "we were 
with a group of department officials who found a large patch 
of marijuana growing dehind the Wildlife and Fisheries 
Building. We filmed while the agents destroyed it." 

Cottrell's involvement with the film projects has led to 
lessons in ecology. He has filmed oil spills and sugar mill 
pollution near Baton Rouge and has gone to the Atchafalava 
Basin for a continuing series of films on the control of 
water hyacinth. He has also filmed laboratory projects as 
they were being conducted in the wildlife and fisheries off- 
shore headquarters on Grand Terre.

the poor, the sick, the under-privileged. But 
basically the American Free Enterprise sys-

The United States Marine Corps is contin- 
ually looking to the nation's colleges and univer- 
sities for a few good men with the potential to lead 

Men selected for Marine officer programs 
attend pre-commission training either in summer 
sessions between academic years, or after college 

There are two basic officer programs. Platoon 
Leaders Class (PLC) and Officer Candidate Class 
(OCC). In addition to ground officer preparation, 
each program has aviation options. Men qualified 
for training either as future pilots or flight officers 
are guaranteed post-commission aviation training 
before they enroll. 

In terms of monetary incentives it is important 
to realize that the amount an officer is paid is 
based on length of service as well as rank. Your 
longevity is counted from the time you enter one of 
our college programs. Begin PLC in your freshman 
year, and you 11 have a three year advantage over 
the senior enrolled in OCC. In dollars and cents 
that can mean over $1,850 in additional annual 
compensation after commissioning. 

Another monetary plus is the financial assist- 
ance that selected PLC members can receive. You 
could get $100 each month of the school year in 
exchange for additional active duty obligations. 
This assistance may be payable for up to three 
years. That's a total of $2,700. 

Challenge, leadership and responsibility await 
the few good men who will become Marine officers. 

Ask a MARINE. Questions about all 
Marine Officer Programs should be directed 
to the Marine Officer Selection Officer who 
visits your campus regularly. To arrange

Multi-arts event at 
Red River Revel 

The Red River Revel, a multi-arts happening, is scheduled 
for September 24-30, 1978. Held at the Convention Center 
Complex on Clyde Fant Parkway in Shreveport, the event is 
an unique celebration where art can be seen, experienced, 
and ignited. 

This "celebration of the arts" offers a variety of en- 
tertainment and food to please everyone. Over 55 musical 
performances provide a touch of all kinds of music. Jazz, 
classical, rock, bluegrass, folk, blues, and progressive 
country are included. 

The performing arts greatly enhance the diverse festival . 
Dancing performances range from modern and jazz to ballet 
to folk and square dancing. Opera and drama are also well 
represented. Also featured as a part of the entertainment are 
yoga, gymnastics, puppet shows, magic shows, and belly 

A popular attraction of the Revel is the demonstrations and 
workshops. Artists not only exhibit their work, but also hold 
sessions in woodcarving, cooking, silk screening, macrame, 
watercolors, batiking, and photography to name only a few. 

There will be a little something for everyone at the festival. 
Woodcarvers, blacksmiths, jewelry, knife, and doll makers, 
basket weavers, and book binders will surely interest many. 

If the entertainment doesn't appeal to you, the food surely 
will. The various booths offer everything. Corndogs, Greek 
pastries, Natchitoches meat pies, seafood gumbo, and red 
beans and rice will tempt everyone's tastebuds. 

A special Revel spirit prevails throughout the entire week 
as the festival moves through its events with ease. Lasting 
each day from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., the Revel is admission-free. 

The Shreveport convention center and riverfront will come 
, alive with the start of the annual Red River Revel. It is an 
event that no one wants to miss!

Play try outs 
scheduled today 

one River Company" 

By Tina LaCaze 

Open tryouts for the second 
production at NSU's Little 
Theater will be held on Sep- 
tember 26 and 27 from 3 to 5 
p.m. and 7 to 10 p.m. 

The Me Nobody Knows, an 
early 1970's rock musical, will 
be directed by Ray Schex- 

For tryouts you should have 
a piece prepared to sing. A 
pianist will be furnished. 


This musical is based 
poetry written by people who 
live in the ghetto. Schexnider 
stated, "The play deals with 
the trials and tribulations of 

this type of life." 

The script consists of I 
limited dialogue that leads! 
into musical numbers. The 
lyrics are about drugs, 

dreams, parent trouble, 
alienation and lack of purpose 
in life. The music, that will be 
updated, will require 
keyboards, percussion, 
guarter, and horns. 

A November production 
date has been set. The director 
hopes to do some matinee 
performances and tour locally 
with a smaller version. 





Sometimes when you reach for a dream 
you have to leave something behind.

Demons Corral Cowboys With 1 0-7 Clash 

Here We Go Again. 

NSU quarterback Kenny Philibert continued his leadership 
as quickness and deception prevented a set back in loss of 

Demons 3-0 to date, what next? 

OH NO YOU Dtifl't'JIf Northwestern right end David Wright downs Cowboys 

• • • quarterback Chad Millet deep in enemy territory. 

The Northwestern State 
Demons seemed to have had 
their best foot forward during 
the Homecoming battle 
against-, the McNeese State 
Cowboys last Saturday night. 
Topping off a very successful 
Homecoming celebration for 
1978-79, the Demons came out 
victorious with a 10-7 win at 
Turpin Stadium. 

With the Cowboys ready for 
action and the kickoff coun- 
ting down, the Demons made a 
few last minute changes in its 
offensive line-up. The most 
notible chanre occur ed with 
No. 44, Joe Delaney, taking 
the place of starter Mark 
Schroeder, No. 24. Delaney, a 
sophomore from Haughton, 
La., has 177 yards and a 7.1 
average per carry this season 
excluding the defeat of Mc- 

The starting of the first 
quarter kicked off with high 
spirits as Connie Hatcher ran 
back the opening kickoff to the 
21 yard line starting deep 

within the end zone. The 
Demons first attempts to 
dominate fell short, ending 
with Dennis Pendergraft's 
first punt of the night for 17 
yards after an unusual bounce 
for the worse. 

With the ball now in the 
hands of the Cowboys, the first 
play took tailback Theron 
jmcClendon off the right tackl, 
running 55-yards untouched, 
and scoring the first touch- 
down of the night. After the 
shattering run by McNeese for 
6 points and Don Stump's 
extra point attempt, NSU 
trailed 7-0. 

The next possession for the 
Demons took shape with 
several well earned first 
downs from various sweeps 
and a combination of short 
passes from NSU quar- 
terback, Kenny Philibert. The 
remaining first quarter 
followed the same tight 
struggle by both teams until 
the clock read 5:56 and 
Pendergraft pulled through 

for the Demons with a 33 yard 
field goal putting the score, 
NSU 3-McNeese 7. 

As the game proceeded in a 
normal rate for the most part, 
an 82 yard drive by the 
Demons late in the second 
quarter gave Brett Knecht a 3 
yard gain along with a touch- 
down. With the Demons now 
credited with 1 field goal, 1 
touchdown, and 1 extra point, 
the Northwestern State 
Demons led the Cowboys 10-7. 

Saturday nights competition 
also aided in setting a new all 
time record for attendance 
with 12,400 fans filling the 
stadium, unfortunately the all 
time low was recorded for 
field goal attempts by both 
teams. With 6 field goal at- 
tempts made throughout the 
night, 3 for NSU and 3 for 
McNeese, only one ball 
stretched the barriers of the 
uprights giving the Demons 
the only accountable field goal 

of the night. 

Enthusiasm is a part of 
every athletic event and thus 
was the case from the fans, 
special guests, and NSU 
Alumni as well planned 
strategy was shown by each 

The NSU Demons are ex- 
periencing a truly rewarding 
season to date with an ex- 
ceptional display of talent on 
both offense and defense. This 
years season has kicked off to 

a winning start for the 
Demons with the full support 
of the student body, faculty, 
and area residents alike. Only 
time can tell for the current 3- 
standing as the Demons go 
head-up with the Northeast 
Louisiana University Indians 
next Saturday night at 7:30 in 
Monroe, La. 

Officials needed 

This year's competition in 
flag football promises to be 
one of definite excitement. 
Already a total of 30 teams 
have begun the final 
preparations of deception to 
put down their opposing 
competitors. With eight of he 
thirty teams belonging to the 
women, the action looks to be 
fast and furious as well as 
time consuming. 

One problem facing each 

team before the starting 
whistle is a lack of ex- 
perienced officials. The In- 
tramural staff urges anyone 
with experience in officiating 
and would be interested in 
continuing their experience to

Office at 357-5461 or stop by

1 978-79 Potpourri staff named 

NSU football players listen intently as Coach A. L. 
Williams outlines game strategy. The Demons 
ranked seventh in the national 1-AA division last 
week — the first ranking the team has made since 
the late Ws. The team travels to Jonesboro, 
Arkansas, this week to tackle Arkansas State.

The Northwestern State Demon 
football team, under the leadership of 
Coach A.L.Williams, has been ranked 
in a national poll for the first time in 
over a decade. 

Associated press sportswriters, in an 
announcement made early last week, 
rated the NSU team number 7 in 
the nation in the 1-AA Division. 

Coach Williams, discussing the event 
in a telephone conversation late last 
week, enthusiastically stated hat the 
ranking had been the team's goal. 
"We're a little higher than we thought 
we would be at this point," he said, 
adding that "if we continue to win, it 
would be great." 

He pointed out that, although the 
team was extremely pleased with the 
achievement, the national ranking has 
also given them the iniative to strive to 
do better. "They want to play harder," 
he said. 

"It has given us something to play 

ROTC plans 
field training 

"Operation Demon VI," a three-day 
field training exercise for high school 
Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps 
cadets, will be conducted Oct. 6-8 at 

Sponsored by the NSU ROTC unit, the 
annual fall program provides high 
school cadets with experience and 
training in the field and gives the 
university cadets an opportunity to 
improve their leadership techniques 
and military skills. 

Lt. Col. Walter Harris, professor of 
military science and director of the 
Northwestern ROTC, said the exercise 
will begin Oct. 6 at 11 a.m. and will 
continue hrough Sunday. 

The staff for this year's Potpourri 
yearbook at Northwestern has 1 been 
announced by the university's public- 
ations \committee. 

Michaek_fiallien; ' senior social 
sciences major from Dry Creek, will 
serve as editor of the student publica- 
tion. A member of the yearbook staff 
since 1976, Gallien was managing editor 
of the yearbook last year. 

Rath disagrees with the idea that the 
Artist Series is designed only for a few 
people-those that know music. "Ac- 
tually, the only way that people get to 
know music is to experience it through 
listening. A person can enjoy listening 
to a concert even though he might not 
know anything about the technical 
aspects of the music. And even if a 
person decides that he doesn't like a 
particular type of music-say a string 
quartet, for example, he should at least 
permit himself to make that judgment 
based on experience. Quite frankly, 
universities have an obligation to 
present cultural opportuniteis to the 
students, faculty, and staff. It's good to 
have a healthy mixture of all aspects of 
public performance in a variety of 

Students are reminded that their 
tickets can be picked up at the Student 
Union Information Office, Room 211, 
betweem 8-12 and 12:30 to 4:30. These 
tickets will be free until Friday, Oct. 
13th. Beginning Monday, Oct. 16th all 
tickets will be released for public 
purchase. So get your tickets early! 

The managing editor for the 1978-79 
Potpourri is Tina Beaham, senior 
speech pathology major from Nat- 

Frankie Singletary, sophomore from 
Pitkin, is the yearbook's organizations 
editor, and sophomore Karlette 
Metoyer of Alexandria is the 
publication's Greek and class editor. 

Natchitoches freshman Candace 
Boyd is editor of the Potpourri's ad- 
ministration section and John Young, a 
freshman from Shreceport, is the 
Potpourri photographer. 

Serving this year as apprentice 
members of the Potpourri staff are 
freshmen Kristy Towry of Natchitoches 
and Bob McKellar of Shreveport. 

Ezra Adams, professor of journalism 
at NSU, is the advisor to the Potpourri 

"I have a very hard-working staff 
this year," Gallien said. "We're startin 
g out with two strikes against us 
becauseof the severe financial 
problems the Potpourri is facing, but I 
am confident that the staff will use the 
funds we do have to put out a quality 
yearbook. " 

Gallien also said that the Potpourri 
staff would appreciate the cooperation 
of all members of the university as the 
staff gathers pictures and information 
for the 1978-79 yearbook.

funeral will be held Wednesday for Pope John Paul I who 
died Friday at the age of 65. Mourners filed past the body of 
the late pontiff over the weekend to pay their respects to the 
man who reigned as the leader of the Roman Catholic Church 
for only 34 days. The pope's death has caused many people to 
question the quality of medical care at the Vatican. 

Kennedy, speaking at the New Hampshire Democratic State

Our money 
isn't good enough 


That wonderfully- 
insane and funfilled event is 
once again knocking on our 

Yes, State Fair week— and 
the Tech game— is almost here. 

Once again we will thrill to 
the midnight journeys to 
Ruston, burn bulldors, ex- 
change insults, post "Go to 
Hell, Tech" stickers 
everywhere and be caught in 
the frenzical, whimsical ac- 
tivities that make State Fair 
week the amazing event that it 
always is. 

Once again Shreveport will 
roll out the red carpet for 
Northwestern and Tech 
students, ready to lap up the 
many $$$$$ spent on this, that, 
and everything. Once again we 
1 wine, dine, party, efer^e^. . . 

But wait. Will the weekend be 
the event it is every year? Or 
has Shreveport decided that 
they aren't interested in the 
students money or business, but 
are instead catering to the 
REAL money— Louisiana 

It's understandable that 
businessesr-etc. want to attract 
the racetrack people, but I find 

it hard to believe that in doing 
so they must cancel reser- 
vations made in the summer so 
that they can make more 
money. I also find that, for a 
city that usually declares the 
Saturday of the Tech- 
Northwestern game as "Tech- 
Northwestern" day, the 
hospitality of several 
businesses is not quite up to 
par. Does this help 
your business? Is this 
good for Shreveport's 

I suggest that Shreveport 
merchants remember that 
students do not always remain 
students. Many of them 
graduate and move to 
Shreveport. Many of successful 
merchants themselves. They 
also become respected, in- 
fluential, voting citizens, and 
when you get down to it, money 
is money, no matter who spends 

If Shreveport doesn't want 
NSU's business for the weekend 
in question, let's hope they 
realize that they could also be 
turning down a lot of 
prosepective business for the 

Mitchell firm 
on energy issue 

Meet James Mitchell. He's a 
junior Economics major, SGA 
Senaor, and student sub- 
committee chairman of the 
faculty Energy Conservation 

What's so unique about him? 

He's the author of six energy 
conservation bills currently 
being passed by the SGA. 
Amidst sighs of boredom and 
mutters of "oh, no, not again", 
Mitchell stands firm in his in- 
troduction of such proposals. 

What do the bills provide? 

Bill No. 9: "An education 
program to be implemented to 
alert students and faculty to the 
expense of energy and the need 
for energy conservation." 

Bill No. 10: "NSU acquire a 
less expensive source of 

Bill No. 12: "NSU adopt a 
four-day school week, allowing 
classroom facilities to be 
inoperable during the extended 

Bill No. 13: "NSU adopt a 
more efficient use of university 

Bill No. 14: "NSU withdraw 
from the city limits of Nat- 
chitoches (to obtain a cheaper 

source of utilities)." 

Bill No. 15: "All night classes 
be conducted in one classroom 
building whenever possible." 

Why do you advocate energy 
conservation so strongly at 
NSU, James? 

"I'm concerned about the 
quality of education which I and 
other students lose because 
NSU has to pay so much money 
to the city of Natchitoches. 
If NSU's utility bill is not 
covered by the $638,400 budget, 
the school will be in serious 
financial trouble." 

What are the results of his 

Mayor DeBlieux is to be 
invited to represent the city of 
Natchitoches in an open-forum 
sponsored by the SGA. The 
administration is confronted 
with student concern. Students 
learn statistics and their 
significance on such critical 
points. You are challenged to 
equal Mitchell's leadership. 

James, meet those who share 
your interest. 

Come on, don't be shy. Let 
James hear your side of the 
energy conservation story.

Captain Pace's comments were made in ieferrenc£>to the 
94 new freshman recruited into the program, the largest 
number of recruits for one semester in five years. The fall 
semester of 1977 brought 45 recruits while there were 80 stu- 
dents recruited in the spring of '78. 
The first ceflfs^ of ROTC has changed since last year. 

According to'Cpt. Pace, "There's a variety of different pro 
grams which we'll make military science bigger than ever.'. 

The first course (MS 101), previously dealing with the 
organization of the army, is now a course in marksmanship 
in which the student may earn a hunter's certificate. 

Iberville cafe ■> 
becomes target 

By Shirley LeDuff 

The SGA Student Services Committee has recently 
begun thorough investigations into student service 
operations on the Northwestern campus according to Jamie 
Sanders, chairman of the committee. Included in these 
operations are Iberville Dining Hall, the Infirmary, and the 
Post Office. 

Iberville Dining Hall has become the first target on the list 
as the result of numerous complaints from students and a 
random poll taken during the Sept. 20 SGA Senatorial elec- 

According to Sanders, 28 (twenty -eight) written com- 
plaints from students concerning the dining hall service were 
taken during the course of the election day. The complaints 
included such comments as: (1) The steak is too tough on 
steak nights; (2) The dining hall needs to stop serving lef- 
tovers; (3) The cafeteria needs to be mopped in a more ef- 
fective sterilizer ; ( 4 ) Janitors sweep while people are eating ; 
(5) The milk is often sour; (6) The service is too 
slow with people who have to rush to classes; why not leave 
both lines open constantly— mainly the breakfast line; the 
attitudes of the workers are sometimes very rude; (7) The 
Workers need to wear hair nets over the hair to keep it out of 
the food and drinks; and (8) The milk machines should be 
kept filled during breakfast. 

A complete list of the complaints was sent 
to Jack McCormick, present manager of Iberville Dining 
Hall. With the list was a memo from Sanders requesting that 
McCormick send feedback to the committee concerning each 
complaint. It was also requested that McCormick attend the 
Oct. 2 SGA Senate meeting. 

A second random poll was also conducted during the 
Senate run-off election of Sept. 27. This poll mainly centered 
around the Infirmary and Post Office although additional 
comments about the dining hall were accepted. 

Results of this poll as well as feedback results from Mc- 
Cormick concerning the food service will be printed in next 
week's Current Sauce.

Art major, Al Lavalais, was elected vice-president of the 
Association of Student Artists at its organizational meeting, 
September 5. Returning officers include President Marie 
Hebert, treasurer David Whetnall, and secretary Gwen 
Snyder. \ 

Hebert said, "The purpose of the club is not to promote an 
individual to a recognizable status. We are not promoting art 
as buyers or sellers. Rather, we are a fellowship, a means for 
people interested in art, no matter what their major or 
minor, to get together and have a good time, but still have the 
opportunity to exchange art ideas or be exposed to the inside 
story of art." 

Plans for th the upcoming state fair weekend celebrations 
are currently being made by social chairman Mark Cotrell. 

After the McNeese game Saturday, September 23, the 
Kappa Sigmas were recognized by the Kappa Alpha order

Argus deadline 
set October 1 1 

Argus, NSU's multi-media 
magazine, is presently in the 
planning stage. According to 
Allen Ford, editor, the literary 
magazine is accepting con- 
tributions from ALL Nor- 
thwestern students for the fall 

Any original prose, poetry, 
artwork or photography must 
be submitted by Oct. 11 to 
Room 316A of the Arts and 
Science Building. 

This relatively new 
magazine is a student- 
financed project. A 
referendum passed by NSU 
students in the spring of 1978 
now gives Argus the financial 
support necessary to produce 
a quality magazine. 

Argus has already had 
visible success in the Southern 
Literary Festival. Richard N. 
Fletcher, Edith M. Harris, 
and Robert Fontenont were 
among the award winning 
staff members and con- 
tributors from past issues. In 
a separate competition 
current editor, Allen Ford 
received a^second place rating 
at the La. yCollege Writers' 
Conference for his con- 

"We encourage students 
from all the NSU campuses to 

contribute their work. There 
are no special qualifications 
required and it gives everyone 
the opportunity to express 
their creativity," suggested 
Allen Ford. 

The magazine has grown 
considerably from its f®st 
issue. It was first a privately 
financed literary magazine 
and is now a multi-media 
magazine publishing quality 
photography, music, aft, 
poetry, and prose. The Argus 
staff also has plans to improve 
upcoming issues. The 
possibility of copyrighting the 
futute.U s o orreproductions 
for photography, music, art- 
work, and an increase in size 
from the last issue are other 

Argus will be distributed 
much like the Potpourri at the 
end of each semester. Per- 
soninterested in contributing 
original work to Argus should 
attach name, mailing address 
and local telephone number on 
a separate piece of paper. All 
poetry and prose should be 
typed and double spaced on 
one side of the paper. :

Miller Co, slates 
pick-em up drive 

Have you ever considered 
picking up beer bottles in 
return for money? No, it's not 
a part of a letter drive... it's 
the "Miller Pick-em up 
Contest" sponsored by the 
Miller Brewing Co. and 
Natchitoches Beverage. 

The contest has been 
popular on the NSU campus 
for several semesters. Any 
recognized campus group or 
organization is eligible to 

It is really very easy. The 
contest merely involves 
collecting Miller brand cans 
and bottles. Each Tuesday 
between 3 p.m. and 4 p.m. the 
collections are brought to a 
college representative at 607 
St. Denis St. The represent- 
ative then in turn gives each 
group points for the amount of 
cans and bottles turned in. The 
points given each week are 
tallied at the end of the 
semester to reveal the groups 
with three highest totals. 

Through this Reclamation 
Program the Miller Brewing 

Company is attempting to 
reduce the costs associated 
with production and energy 
usage by recycling their 
containers. It also aids in 
keeping Natchitoches and 
other areas clean. 

According to Michael and 
Sharon Vercher, NSU campus 
representatives, the grand 
prize winner must acquire 
5,000 points. The second and 
third place winners require 
3,000 and 2,000 points, 

Over 100 colleges and 
universities throughout the 
United States participate 
annually in the Miller 
Reclamation Program. 
Several Louisiana schools also 
take part. They include Nic- 
hols, Southwestern, 
Southeastern, Northeastern, 
as well as, Northwestern. 

Groups interested in par- 
ticipating in the program can 
contact Michael or Sharon 
Vercher at 352-6511 between 8 
a.m. and 5 p.m. or contact

.but there s always tomorrow 

you ever had one of those days 
that everything you did or 
tried somehow went wrong? 

Well, Northwestern State 
University head football coach 
A.L. Williams knows how you 
feel, because he and his 
Demon squad had one of those 
"days" Saturday night. 

"I wish I could explain what 
happened to us," Williams 
said in the wake of his team's 
demoralizing 46-0 loss to 
Northeast Louisiana Saturday 
night in Monroe. "We just 
didn't do any of the things that 
we had been doing all year, 
and when we got behind we 
couldn't recover." 

The Demons, suffering a 
loss for the first time in four 
outings this year, were vic- 
timized by eight turnovers 
during the contest, which 
matched two unbeaten teams 
and boosted Northeast's 
record to 4-0 on the year. 
However, it wasn't the tur- 
novers that did NSU in. 

Instead, it was a seemingly 
never-ending succession of big 
plays by the Indian offense, 
which put on its most out- 
standing show of the season. 
The Indians scored five of- 
fensive touchdowns, and four 
of them came on plays of 38 
yards or more. That total 
gives NLU eight sc 



res from that distance or more 
out of 12 this year. 

"We fell behind early, but I 
was always confident that we 
could come back," Williams 
said. "We kept making 
mistakes and giving up the big 
play, though, and when they 
got ahead by 23 points early in 
the second quarter we were in 

The Demons drove to the 
NLU 19 on the game's first 
possession before Dennis 
Pendergraft misfired on a 37- 
yard field goal, and on NLU's 
second play from scrimmage 
John Floyd hauled in a 79-yard 
aerial from quarterback 
Kirby Arceneaux to start the 

■ > IHHH 


"If we had taken that first 
score in, I think it would have 
been a very different ball 
game," Williams said. "We 
had to abandon our game plan 
and play catch-up, and we 
made too many mistakes to do 

The Indians rolled up 548 
yards in total offense on the 
Demon defense, which had 
been the squad's saving grace 
in NLU's first three wins, and 
Arceneaux and Bud Cespiva 
riddled the Demon secondary 
for 15 pass complitions in 23 
tries without an interception, 
including two long scores to 

"After we got burned a 
couple of times, our backs 
started playing cautiously," 
said Williams, "and they 
completed several passes that 
we would normally have well 
covered. You've got to give 
Northeast some credit, 
though, because they were 
ready and did a great job 
doing the things they do well." 

The problem for the Demons 
now is to regroup from their 
worst defeat in 27 seasons 
f since a 76-0 loss to Mississippi 
Southern in 1951) before 
Saturday's contest with 
Arkansas State, the second of 
a series of four straight road 

"We've come back before," 
Williams said, "and I think 
squad has the type of 


people that will be able to 
forget this loss and look for- 
ward to the rest of the season. 
I hope so, anyway."

SGAand Blood 
Center ask NSU 
to 'Give Blood 

and Share Life 7 

The Northwestern Student Govern- 
ment Association in coordination with 
the Shreveport Regional Blood Center 
is sponsoring a blood drive on the NSU 
campus Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 
25 and 26 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the 
Student Union Ballroom. 

A frisbee will be given to each blood 
donor in an effort to promote student 
participation. The Regional Blood 
Center has also sent t-shirts, bumper 
stickers, and publicity signs to promote 
the drive. 

Any person between the ages of 18 
and 65 is eligible to give blood as long as 
he or she weighs at least 110 pounds and 
is in good health. Blood may be donated 
every eight weeks. 

The most common type of blood is O 
Positive, while AB Negative is the 
rarest blood type. However, the 
brochure points out that even 
Positive blood can be "rare" if there is 
not enough of it when a person needs it. 

According to a brochure distributed 
by the Natchitoches Parish Volunteer 
Blood Program, donating blood is 
quick, easy, and relatively painless. 

Why should you donate blood? The 
brochure states a simple reason— blood 
is life and there are no machines which 
manufacture blood. Blood of every 
group and type must always be 
available in case of emergency or 
special need. 

A brochure distributed by the 
American Association of Blood Banks 
explained that a one pint donation is 
less than 10 percent of the body's supply 
of blood and that this amount will not be 
missed. According to the brochure, the 
red cells donated will be replaced by 
the body in about two or three weeks. In 
addition to red blood cells, plasma is 
also a vital part of the blood which is 

The Blood Center stresses that it is 
important for the donor to eat a good 
meal four hours prior to giving the 
blood. Any medication such as an- 
Gbiodics, or diabees medication which 
indicates that a donor may have an 
underlying disease will make some 
blood donors unacceptable. 

The blood that a person donates must 
be used within 21 days after it is given. 
However, new methods no 
w enable medical personnel o preserve 
components of the blood for longer 
periods of this time. 

Those who donate blood become 
members of the Family Blood 
Assurance Plan of the Shreveport 
Regional Blood Center. 

"We strongly urge all students, 
faculty, and staff members to par- 
ticipate in making this drive a suc- 
cess," stated Terry McCarty, SUA 
coordinator of the blood drive.

KILLED — Shreveport police 
officer Thomas Glen Tomplina 
was shot and killed Friday 
night while transporting a 
man to the city jail after a 
disturbance at a bar. The 
suspect has been identified as 
WXAYNE Felde, a Maryland 
state pentitentiary escapee. 
The police officers were called 
to the Shreveport bar after a 
disturbance was reported. The 
officers removed Felde from 
the bar and tried to send him 
home in a taxi, but the suspect 
became belligerent. After 
searching the suspect, the 
officers found a box of bullets 
on him. They then arrested 
and handcuffed him and 
placed him in the patrol car. 
Even though he had been 
searched, Felde had managed 
to hide a gun in his pants. 
Tomplins had driven only a 
few hundred yards when 
Felde shot Tompkins in the 
lower back. Officers shot and 
arrested Felde, who escaped 
from the patrol car, a few 
moments later. Shreveport 
detectives said that an in-

to determine if the officers 
were negligent In their duty

NSU enrollment down for Fall 78 

but administrators optimistic for future 

Northwestern along with several 
other universities across the state 

experienced a drop in enrollment for 
the fall semester, according to a report 

released last week by the Louisiana 
Board of Regents. 

However, school administrators are 
optimistic that the situation will im- 
prove in the future. 

The NSU Registrar's Office reports 
that total enrollment including un- 
dergraduate and graduate students is 
5,894, compared to the 6,216 students 

enrolled last fall. This is a five percent 
drop in enrollment. 

The Board of Regents reported 
enrollment drops at Northeast. Mc- 
Neese, the University of Southwestern 
Louisiana, and three LSU institutions— 
the University of New Orleans, the Law 
Center, and LSU-A. 

LSU-Baton Rouge campus reported 
a 4.5 percent increase and the 
LSU-Eunice campus an 8.5 
in crease. 

NSU student enrollment is divided 
among six academic colleges as 
follows: Business, 876; Liberal Arts, 
427; Education, 974; University 
College, 916; Nursing, 802; and Science 
and Technology, 658. There are 1,241 
students enrolled in graduate school 
this semester. 

"We all hope enrollment will increase 
and we are doing all we can to help," 
stated Ms. Cleola La Roue in the Regist- 
rar's Office. She cited the Board of 

Regents report, pointing out that NSU 
is not the only university that has lost 

students. When asked about enrollment 
projections for the spring, Ms. LaRoue 

explained that spring enrollment is 
usually a little less than in the fall even 
when fall enrollment figure are up. 

Director of High School Relations 
Danny Seymour is another ad- 
ministrator who is working to boost 
NSU's enrollment. 

"We are using programs that have 
worked in the past, and implementing 
new, frest ideas to tell people about 
NSU," he said. 

"The reception has been good 
because people are interested in the 
"new" NSU with its new administration 
and programs. People are happy to 
hear from us," he cont' — • «d. 

Although enrollment figures were 
disappointing this semester, people on 
campus are working and planning for a 
better future. 

Seymour expressed what seems to be 
a common attitude on campus when he 
said, "I am enthusiastic and looking 
forward to brighter days."

Fair Week 

From the Monday night midnight 
breakfast to the week-end activities in 
Shreveport, many NSU students en- 
Joyed a fun-filled State Fair Week for 

Members of the SGA and SUGB 
served breakfast to the student body in 
Iberville dining hall Monday night, 
kicking off the week's activities. 

Tuesday the NSU SGA travelled to 
Louisiana Tech where they defeated the 
Tech Student Government Association 
in flag football. 

The '50's' were alive at NSU on 
Wednesday as students pulled out their 
leather jackets and bobby socks for 
games, competitions and parties. The 
activities ranged from ice cream eating 
contests to hula-hoop contests at 
students celebrated in the 'Grease' 

Dancing flames let up the sky 
Thursday night on the side of Sabine 
dormitory and a 'bulldog' was burned 
at the annual bonfire. The NSU 
cheerleaders led the crowd In yells and 
chants to "fire-up" the Demons In 
preparation for the weekend ahead. 

By Friday afternoon the Nor- 
thwestern campus had few signs of life 
as students headed for the festivities in 

The sun was shining, the temperature 

was comfortable and Shreve Square 
was packed Saturday afternoon as NSU 

and Louisiana Tech students gathered 
for the annual Rally In the Alley. A 

spirited pep rally led by the two 
school's cheerleaders helped put the 

crowd in the mood for the game ahead. 
Most of the crowd seemed to be en- 
Joying themselves as the they visited, 
celebrated and Joked about the football 
clash at State Fair Stadium. 

A crowd of 21,000 fans assembled 
under a cool clear sky Saturday night to 
watch the Demons and the Bulldogs. 
The NSU State Fair Court members 
were escorted by SGA officers and 
Senators during pre-game ceremonies. 
Dr. Rene Bienvenu crowned Queen 
Diane MeKellar before a cheering NSU 

Although the NSU fans were disap- 
pointed with the results of the football 
game, the night was not over for many. . 
Students and visitors from both schools 
crowded the State Fair midway to 
enjoy the numerous rides, games and 

Everything may not have turned out 
as the Demons had hoped his weekend, 
but the NSU student body put much 
spirit and enthusiasm into State Fair.

Hats off (?) 

to Shreveport 

Thanks Shreveport. 

Thank you so much for your 
hospitality last week. 

Thank you for your Mayor 
calling a press conference for 
the Tech-Northwestern Queens 
last Tuesday and then neither 
the Mayor nor the press 
showing up. 

Thank you for accepting hotel 
reservations last summer for 
organizations and cancelling 
them about a month before the 
weekend, so that a lot of 
students had to dig just for a 
place to stay. 

Thanks for the extreme 
cooperation at State Fair 
stadium.. .the great parking 
spaces alloted to the schools, 
the press cooperation, the 
cooperation with the bands 
(giving them both the same 
hour to practice was really 

Thanks to the Mayor for his 
concern about everything. 
Shreveport can't get a new one 
too soon. 

Thanks for making no bones 
about your number one love 
last weekend, the racetrack. 

We're sorry we couldn't pour 
more money into your 
economy— but thank you for 
accepting our few thousand 
dollars as ungratefully as you 
did. It's just that we didn't have 
anywhere else to spend it. 

Maybe, just maybe, we can 
pay you back in some way for 
all that you didn't do. Like 
maybe not having the Nor- 
thwestern-Tech game t ere. 
Since both schools have ex- 
cellent football facilities now, 
it's just possible it can be 
arranged to play the games in 
Ruston and Natchitoches from 
now on, and those two cities, 
who aren't so lucky to have a 
great racetrack can begin to 
put into their economy the 
"few, meazly dollars" that the 
two school students bodies, 
faculties, administrations, and 
alumnis spend on that weekend. 
(By the way Shreveport, you 
love the racetrack so much, 
why did you vote it down 
several years ago and give the 
option to Bossier City?) 

Thank you, Shreveport, so 
very much. For nothing. 

Blood IS life 

In this day of non- 
involvement and "do your own 
thing" philosophy it is difficult 
to experience a sense of unity 
with your fellow maa All men, 
however, have in common the 
gift of life and the resp 
risibility of respecting and 
preserving that gift. 

You can help sustain the life 
force of which you are an in- 
tegral part, by donating blood. 
Blood IS life. It is the common 
bond of mankind. It is the 
precious human resource 
which can be shared dy one 
human being for the sake of 

When you give blood, you 
share the personal gift of your 
ife-force...with the injured 
victim of an accident or 
disaster... with the patient 
undergoing open heart 

surgery... with the child with 
leukemia or hemophilia.. with 
the woman in childbirth... with 
the newborn with RH factor 

In all of these instances and a 
multitude of others, life would 
end without the sustaining 
properties of blood. Thus when 
you give blood, you give life to 
someone else... a stranger in

on Wednesday and Thursday, 
October 24 and 25 when the

Dig Savin 

We are burning up our oil 
and natural gas resources as 
i'f there's no tomorrow. But 
tomorrow's needs for energy 
will be even greater than 

This year the U.S. is ex- 
pected to consume almost 
20 million barrels of oil a 
day. According to The World 
Almanac only 10 million 
barrels of oil a day are pro- 
duced domestically. Fright- 
ening, isn't it? By 1985 it 
is estimated that consump- 
tion will increase up to 
25.6 barrels a day, with do- 
mestic production rising to 
only around 11 million 
barrels daily. 

g Energy, Geologists 

This harsh reality of do- 
mestic supplies lagging far 
behind our pace of con- 
sumption, combined with 
the leveling off of our rate 
of discovering new oil and 
gas fields, makes us depend 
more on other forms of 
energy from the earth: coal, 
uranium, water and geo- 
thermal (heat from the 
earth itself) energy. How- 
ever, like oil and gas, these 
forms too are not limitless. 

Only if every single one 
of us curbs his or her seem- 
ingly unquenchable thirst 
for energy and takes simple 
steps to conserve it at home, 
at work and on the road can 


we continue to enjoy our 

way of life. A way of life 
made possible by once- 
abundant energy supplies. 
We must also support efforts 
to discover new resources. 
The American Geological 
Institute urges us to "work 
together to make them (our 
natural resources) work

eral years ago we devel- 
oped the confidence of 
gangster John Roselli, one 
of the mobsters whom the 
Central Intelligence 
Agency recruited to mur- 
der Cuban Premier Fidel 
Castro. With Roselli's help, 
we were able to break that 
story in January, 1971. 

He continued to talk to us 
over the years. He was 
always cautious with 
words. But in his guarded 
way, he indicated to us that 
the plot against Castro had 
backfired. He suggested 
that Castro had captured 
the underworld assassins, 
had brought pressure on 
them to reverse the plot 
and had sent them after 
President Kennedy. 

The assassins, Roselli 
also indicated, worked for 
Mafia godfather Santos 
Trafficante, the former 
overlord of the mob-owned 
gambling casinos in 
Havana. Roselli implied 
that Lee Harvey Oswald, 
the accused Kennedy 
killer, was a patsy used by 
the mob. Once he was 
apprehended, he had to be 
shut up. This assignment 
allegedly was given to 
Jack Ruby, whom Roselli 
identified as an un- 
derworld punk with links to 

The story was so fantas- 
tic that we found it hard to 
swallow. Then, on Aug. 3, 
1976, some of Roselli's 
friends told us that he was 
missing. They implied that 
he might be in trouble with 
the mob for talking to us. 
His body was found a few

days later in an oil drum, 
wrapped in heavy chains. 

It had been heaved into 
Miami Bay where it was 
supposed to have disap- 
peared forever on the 
ocean bottom. But body 
gases made the oil drum 
buoyant and caused it to 
rise eerily from its watery 

Police sources told us 
they had learned from un- 
derworld informants that 
Santos Trafficante had or- 
dered Roselli rubbed out. 
This was an allegation, of 
course, that could not be 

Roselli has been dead for 
over two years. But his 
story has come back to 
haunt Trafficante. Recent- 
ly, he was hauled before 
the House Assassinations 
Committee and questioned 
about reports that he had 
foretold that Kennedy 
"would be hit." 

The crime lord, hunched 
and balding, denied it. 
"Absolutely not," he said. 

Now, however, we have 
obtained a fascinating FBI 
report dated March 21, 
1967. It quotes a former top 
FBI official who had 
learned from his law cli- 
ents about the CIA-Mafia 
plot to knock off Castro. 

"Castro ... arrested a 
number of suspects," 
states the report. "By 
pressuring the captured 
suspects, he was able to 
learn the full details of the 
plot against him. He decid- 
ed, 'If that is the way 
President Kennedy wanted 
it, he too could engage in 

Oswald Deaths 
but Persistent 

the same tactics.' 

"Castro thereafter em- 
ployed teams of individu- 
als who were dispatched to 
the United States for the 
purpose of assassinating 
President Kennedy." 

In short, the story simply 
won't go away. This, of 
course, does not mean it is 
true. There is no proof. 
And Castro himself has 
emphatically denied it. 

Trade War: With cold 
and quiet efficiency, the 
Soviet Union is winning a 
major war against the 
United States - without 
firing a shot. It is the trade 

While U.S. officials sit 
idly by, the Soviets are 
seizing control of the 
world's major shipping 
routes. The American 
maritime fleet, mean- 
while, is becoming an in- 
ternational joke. If the sit- 
uation does not change, the 
United States may be pay- 
ing the Russians to ship 
American materials in the 
decade ahead. 

The Kremlin bosses have 
made it clear that they 
intend to use the world's 
shipping lanes as an "in- 
ternational tool for build- 
ing communism." They 
are accomplishing it by 
undercutting their mari- 
time competitors by as 
much as 50 percent. Soviet 
shippers, in short, are tak- 
ing huge, government-sub- 
sidized losses in order to 
steal business away from 
Western shippers. 

Pension Plight: More 
than 30 million Americans 
are enrolled in some form 

of pension program. Con- 
gressional investigators 
have determined, howev- 
er, that many employees 
who are counting on their 
pensions to cushion their 
retirement might do better 
to put their money in sav- 
ings accounts. 

This confidential investi- 
gation, conducted by Sen. 
Howard Metzenbaum, D- 
Ohio, has raised serious 
questions about how the 
funds are being managed, 
or mismanaged. The sena- 
tor is planning to hold 
hearings on the pension 
fund fiasco next month. 

Deceptive Advertising: 
The military dictators who 
run Chile have received a 
lot of bad publicity. They 
have been denounced for 
abusing human rights. And 
now the United States is 
trying to extradite the for- 
mer Chilean secret police 
chief for masterminding a 
murder in Washington, 

The Chilean leaders are 
trying to counterattack 
with some positive publici- 
ty. But they are using 
highly deceptive tactics. 

The Chilean embassy, 
for example, recently dis- 
tributed a publicity pack- 
age to the press. One of the 
items included in it was the 
September issue of 
Nation's Business maga- 
zine. The embassy boasted 
that the periodical con- 
tained "a special report on 

The so-called "special 

report" .was in fact a paid 
advertising supplement.

'Happy Days 
oes to Festival 

Northwestern State University entered Samuel Beckett's 
iy, "Happy Days" in the Louisiana College Theatre 
'Stival this past weekend in Baton Rouge. 
Hie production, which featured Deborah Gray Minturn of 
itchitoches as Winnie and Charlie Grau of Shreveport as 
jllie, was presented in state competition Friday night at 
jiiisiana State University. 

Beckett's play, a full-length drama that continues the 
fthor's relentless search for the meaning of existence, was 
fected by Dr. E. Robert Black. Dr. Black is a professor and 
•airman of the Department of Speech and Journalism at 

Seven Universities presented plays at the state contest in 

iton Rouge, which is a part of the American College 

leatre Festival sponsored by the American Theatre 

podation and the Amoco Oil Company. 

K panel of judges evaluated the entries on the basis of 

ting, set design, lighting, sound, and costuming, make-up, 

d the overall efectiveness of the production. 

Since Louisiana is a member of Region 5 with Oklahoma,

Dr. Steve Miller, coor- 
liator of the Media Center on 
e NSU Warrington Campus, 
reveport, will participate in 
e 1978 World Powerlifting 
jampionship in Turku, 
bland as a member of the 
b U.S.A.— A.A.U. World 

The actual competition will 
ke place November 4th, with 
|r. Miller leaving the U.S. on 
ctober 26th and returning 

Dr. Miller, who has been 
iwerlifting for ten years, 
came a member of the 
S.A. team by tying the 
rrent world champion in the 
nior National Trials. 

Originally from Shreveport, 

Dr. Miller has been training at 
the YMCA and Nautilus 
Fitness Center. 

To explain the competition, 
Dr. Miller stated,"There are 
three lifts: the squat, bench 
press, and dead lift. Each 
person gets three attempts at 
each lift, with the best of each 
totaled for a final score. The 
highest score becomes the 
winner. I will be competing in 
the 198 lb. class." 

He also says, "I am en- 
thusiastic about competing 
and have a definite plan of 
action. I will be concentrating 
more on my own efforts than 
on what others will be doing. I 
also plan to start with the 
weights I know I can handle 
and work my way up." 

Texas, New Mexico, and Arkansas, the judging panels will 
meet in December after all state festivals have been com- 
pleted, to nominate the eight plays that will be presented at 
Fort Worth, Tex., in the Regional finals. Regional winners 
advance to the national competition in Washington, D.C., at 
the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. 

Although Northwestern 's production was in competition 
with other colleges and universities Dr. Black said, "The 
main benefit of these Festivals is to allow colleges to see each 
other's work and basically just to learn. It also gives us a 
chance to be in contact with the other Drama departments. 
About the trip he said, "We had a wonderful and highly in- 
spirational time." 

The actors also participated in an acting workshop as part 
of the Festival. After presenting a scene from Genet's "The 
Maids", they were critiqued and advised by a professional 
Canadian actor. 

Charlie Grau, who portrayed Willie in "Happy Days" 
commented that the Festival gave actors a good opportunity 
to talk with the pros." 

In addition to Northwestern, Universities participating in 
the contest were LSU, Univeristy of Southwestern Louisiana, 
Louisiana Tech University, Nicholls State University, 
Southeastern Louisiana University, and the University of 
New Orleans. 

This was Northwestern 's seventh year to participate in the 
state festival, and NSU has had one play chosen for regional 
competition and four others as alternate selections.

Campus News briefs, 




"All foreign language 
courses will be worth three 
hours credit, starting in the 
spring." says Dr. James 
Bartholomea, head of the 
language department at 
Northwestern. Until now the 
first two courses in foreign 
languages were worth five 
hours with the next course 
being three hours, thereby 
fulfilling the old 13 hour 
requirement of liberal arts 

The people who have five 
hours under the old system by 
the end of the semester will 
only be required to take 
another six hours. All new 
students in the languages will 
have to take four three hour 
courses to meet the new 12 
hour requirement. 

Other changes in the 
language department include 
a major change in the ad- 
vanced language courses. 
Starting in the spring, the 
advanced courses will be 
directed toward the actual 
speaking of the languages 
instead of the literature state 
Dr. Bartholomew. 

Bob Wilson was recently 
promoted to Director of 
Student Activities 

New student 


Robert W. Wilson has been 
promoted at Northwestern 
State University from director 
of the Student Union to 

Brewer, a specialist in adult and community education, has 
been appointed associate professor of secondary education at 
Northwestern State University, as announced by NSU 
president Dr. Rene J. Bienvenu. Northwestern's new 
professor has conducted a study of vocational instructors 
using the performance-based adult vocational education 
system. She has also completed a survey of non-credit 
continuing education programs in consumer economics in 
four-year institutions of higher education. 

Eleven undergraduate students at NSU have been awarded 
stipends ranging from $500 to $1,000 to assist them in special 
field experience programs in social work. Funds for the 
stipends were provided through a $50,000 Title XX grant 
awarded to Northwestern's Department of Sociology and 
Social Work to continue its program of producing trained 
human service personnel to work in state and private social 
service agencies throughout Louisiana. The students 
receiving stipends were chosen on the basis of overall grade 
{Obit average and their aptitude for social work services. 

Northwestern State University were in New Orleans last 
week to attend conferences of the Gulf Coast Association of 
Geologic Societies and the Gulf Coast Section of the Society of 
Economic Paleontologists and Mineralogists. Dobbins, an 
associate professor of geology, said several papers relating 
to new developments in the petroleum industry and the 
search for "black gold" were presented during the two 
meetings. Northwestern students who attended the meeting 
were T. C. Bearden, Celeste Lane and Tim McKee. 

Ryan of Northwestern State University has been selected as 
a participant in a short couse on mathematical models to be 
conducted by the National Science Foundation at the 
University of Texas in Austin. Ryan, a professor of 
mathematics at NSU, is one of only 20 mathematicians from 
across the country invited to participate in the short course. 
Two-day sessions are scheduled for Oct. 30-31 and March 5-6. 
Conducting the short course will be Dr. William Lucas, 
professor of mathematics at Cornell University in New York.

The popular Mercury Records recording artists "Con Funk

Board's Big Name Entertainment Committee, will begin at 
8:00 p.m. with Atlantic Records new discovery, "Eclypse", 
opening the bill. 

Con Funk Shun's latest release was the "Loveshine " 
album, which is their third LP and their second gold album. 

The group gained popularity through their last release 
"Secrets" and the single from that album, "Ffun." Both 
went gold. 

The Memphis-based group originally began a decade ago 
in Vellejo, California when Mike Cooper (guitar) and Louis 
McCall (drums) formed Project Soul while still in high 
school. In one year they expanded to their current lineup of 
Karl Fuller (horns), Paul Harrell (horns), Cedric Martin 
(bass), Felton Pilate (horns), and Danny Thomas 
(keyboards). The group has remained the same ever since. 

Around 1971 the group appeared with the Soul Children in 
the movie release "Wattstax". In 1972 the group moved to 
Memphis and changed their name to Con Funk Shun. 

The group has toured with such acts as Stevie Wonder, 
Tower of Power, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Rose Royce, and many

The deadline for signing up 
for the Student Union 
Governing Board's "Great 
Pumpkin Carving Contest" is

which will be held October 31,

"Don't go straig t to see this 
movie," exclaims the movie 
poster. If you understand the 
meaning behind those words, 
"Up In Smoke", starring 
Cheech and Chong, is the 
movie for you. If you think the 
phrase means to walk into the 
theatre slanted over on one 
side, don't go to see it. 

This movie takes the ex- 
periences of two ordinary 
hippies and expands them to a 
point of hilarious disbelief. 

From getting free of a drug 
bust by making their own bust 
on the trial judge, to un- 
wittingly smuggling a van 

made entirely of shellacked 
marijuana while bemoaning 
their current lack of it, this 
movie explores every drug 
related fear or fantasy you've 
ever had. One fantasy occurs 
in the movie when Cheech and 
Chong turn on the entire 
audience of a punk rock 
"Battle of the bands" with 
music and dope while having 
had only hree practice 

Perhaps a more accurate 
version if the poster message 
would be, "Go straight to see 
this movie, but don't be 
straight when you do."

the count to 17-0. 

The Jinx wasn't through yet,

Pendergraft punted out of 
bounds near midfield, and was 
apparently roughed by a Build 
who was trying for another 
blocked punt. Although 
Pendergraft fell down when he 
was hit, there was no penalty 
called— against the 'Dogs, 
that is. Pnedergraft's 
argument with the officials 
over the play prompted a 
personal foul call on the 
Demons that moved the ball to 
the NSU 34. 

It took the Bulldogs just 
three plays to score again. 
Tailback George Yates got the 
tuchdown for Tech on a 16

simple power play over left

to the right wide as Yates cut 
back against the grain. The 
point after was good, and the 
crowd of 21,000 fans began to 
drift back out towards the fair.

Baseballers Take Three of Four 

Northwestern State University's Demons 
make their first home appearance in over a 
month at Turpin Stadium tonight, and the 
Demon squad is more than happy to be home 
to face the Colonels of Nicholls State 

Northwestern completed a disastrous four- 
game series of contests on the road in a 45-20 
loss to La. Tech last Saturday night in the 
annual "State Fair Classic", which followed 
back-to-back-to-back losses to Northeast 
Louisiana, Arkansas State and Louisville and 
left the Demons at 3-4 on the season after a 3-0 

Nicholls State, on the other hand, snapped a 
three-game losing streak last Saturday with a 
10-7 victory over Mississippi College, a vic- 
tory which boosted the Colonels to an iden- 
tical 3-4 record. Nicholls is also 3-1 in com- 
petition in the Gulf South Conference, the 
league that Northwestern formerly belonged 
to before stepping up to Division I status. 

"Nicholls always plays us as tough as they 
play anybody all year," said NSU head coach 
A. L. Williams, "We've never really played 
up to our potential against them, but they've 
always come up with a fine effort against us." 

The series records tend to bear that out. 
The Colonels hold a 4-1 record in the series 
between the two teams which began in the 
1973 season, with the Demons' only win being 
a 20-8 decision here in Turpin Stadium in 1976. 

Nicholls State won last year's meeting 10-6 
in Thibodeaux, one of four wins in a 4-7 season 
for the Colonels while Northwestern 
rebounded to finish 6-6 on the year. 

"We're going to have to come up with a 
better effort than we've been getting over the 
past few weeks, said Williams. "We didn't 
play that baely against Arkansas State, but 
against Louisville and Tech we didn't execute 
well at all." 

In the loss to the Bulldogs, the Demons were 
gehi behind 45-fl before getting any points on 
the board, with all of those 20 points coming in 
the fourth quarter on a pair of one-yard runs 
by quarterback Rex Henderson and a flea- 
flicker pass from Wyanond Waters to Mike 
Almond good for 38 yards. 

There were a couple of other bright spots 
for the Demons in that loss. Almond, a senior, 
had two catches in the game, giving him 86 
catches in his career to break NSU's all-time 
career pass reception record of 85 set by 
Steve Gaspard from 1966-69. 

The other bright spot was the play of fresh- 
man free safety Darrell Toussaint, a walk-on 
this fall who wasn't even listed on the roster 
early in the season. Toussaint, a 5-foot-10, 160 
pounder from Opelousas, had 15 individual 
tackles, one fumble recovery, one caused 
fumble and the game 's big hit awarded by the 
defensive coaches. 

"Darrell was one of only a few players that 
played really well", Williams said. "He had a 
super game, i and if everybody had given the 
effort he did we would have had a great 

Nicholls sports a balanced offense, with 
four rushers over the 200-yard mark. 
Fullback Louis Henry leads the way with 277 
yards on the season. 

Northwestern State University's fall baseball squad took 
three out of four games last week to even its record at 4-4 on 
the abbreviated fall season. 

The Demons split a pair of games with Centenary College 
in Shreveport Friday, losing the opener 10-1 but rallying back 
for a 6-5 victory in the nightcap. That followed a 
doubleheader sweep of Northeast Louisiana last Monday at 
Stroud Field, the Demons taking a pair of 5-4 and 8-7 vic- 

"We've been playing pretty good ball," said NSU graduate 
assistant coach Barry Hebert, "but the thing that pleases me 
more is that we've been playing a lot of people and have still 
done well. We've been trying to give our new people some 
experience, and we've been playing over 20 people in each of 
our doubleheaders so far." 

The sqaud rallied in the top of the seventh in the second 
game against Centenary, putting together two hits and a 
walk to break a 5-5 tie. Kenny Stelly picked up the victors. 

In the first game of that twinbill, the Demons were out of 
the game as early as the second inning when the Gentlemen 
rolled up nine runs on nine consecutive hits in the Second 
frame. Steve Fry suffered the loss for NSU. 

Things went a little better in the earlier contests against 
Northeast, which was NSU's first doubleheader sweep of the 
fall season. The Demons followed the pitching of Scott 
Stagner and Chris Soileau and had a balanced hitting attack 
in taking a 5-4 first-game victory over the Indians, who 
remained winless on the season with the sweep. 

In the second game, NSU trailed 7-3 entering the bottom of 
the seventh inning but put on a rally. Two runs were scored 
with no outs, and John Stasai blasted a home ruir $> 'eft field 
to tie the contest at 7-7. Donnie Mosley 's one-out sing! e plated 
Daryl Keowen moments later for the winning run.^ 

But Big Plus for NSU Team 

First baseman Ted Reeves scored on this close 
play at the plate during last Monday's 

doubleheader with Northeast at Stroud Field. 

NSU batgtrl Scottl Dawson finally found home 
plate and gave it a much-needed cleaning during 
the doubleheader with NLU. 

Demons Second in 
USL Cross Country 

Records # No Big Deal'to Mike Almond 

Northwestern State 
University's cross country 
squad used an overall team 
effort to tie for second this 
past Saturday in the annual 
University of Southwestern 
La. Invitational Meet in 

The Demon squad finished 
with 41 points, only three 
points behind USL's winning 
38-point total and tied with 
McNeese State with 41. The 
University of New Orleans 
was a distant fourth with 103 

"I was very impressed with 
ur overall effort," said NSU 
track and field and cross 
country coach Jerry Dyes 
after themeet. "Both USL and 
McNeese have outstanding 
teams, and I am pleased that 
we stayed with them the way 
we did." 

Sophomore Billy Green, as 
he has for all of NSU's other 
meets (his season, was the 

Demons' top finisher with a 
fourth-place clocking of 31:58 
over the 10,000-meter USL 
course. The Marshall native 
trailed only Noel McCarron 
and Lyle vanHorn of McNeese 
State and Gerry Papillion of 
USL in the meet. 

McNeese finished one-two 
with McCarron winning in 
31:20 and van Horn second in 
31:45. Papillion was USL's top 
finisher in 31:56 two seconds a 
ead of Green. 

Freshman Jeff Baker was 
NSU's next finisher, coming in 
sixth in 31 : 10 while sophomore 
Vic Bradford was right behind 
in seventh place with a 32:23 

Junior Windell Bonner was 
Uth with a 33:00 time, 
sophomore Ricky Crutcher 
finished 13th with a 33:30 
clocking, and sophomore 
Randy Robinson rounded out 
NSU's finishers with an 18th 
place finish in 35:08. 

He is on the verge of becoming Nor- 
thwestern State University's all-time pass 
reception leader, but that's not a big deal to 
Mike Almond. 

It's not a big deal to a lot of other people, 
either, because things like that have now 
come to be expected of the 6-foot-2, 190-pound 
senior standout. The outstanding has almost 
become commonplace, and the superhuman 
has become practically typical. 

Almond's performance last Saturday night 
during Northwestern loss to Louisville was a 
good example of that. The Bossier City native 
hauled in pass after pass in the losing effort, 
and when it was over he had 10 receptions for 
145 yards on the night. That total was enough 
for a new school single-game reception mark, 
breaking the old mark of eight set in 1966 by 
Russ Gielow against Southwestern La. and 
tied two years later by Steve Gaspard against 
Abilene Christian. 

Still, the performance went all but un- 
noticed... except by those who saw it. 

"Mike had the kind of game that he's 
capable of at any time," said NSU head coach 
A. L. Williams. "He made all the difficult 
catches look routine, and he went up after the 
ball in a crowd a lot of times and came down 
with it." 

On Almond's first two catches Saturday 
night, when the Demons faced arch-rival La. 
Tech in the annual "State Fair Classic" in 
Shreveport, he tied and broke the school all- 
time career record for receptions of 85, set by 
Gaspard between 1966-69. 

"The record's important because it'll give 

somebody else something to shoot for later," 
Almond said. "But I'd rather go without 
catching a pass and have us win." 

Almond made a splash during his first year 
at Northwestern when he caught 25 passes for 
399 yards and three touchdowns to lead the 
team in all three categories. For that per- 
formance, he was named as Louisiana's 
"Outstanding Freshman" on the All- 
Louisiana Collegiate Team. He did all of that, 
incidentally, with a club that compiled a 1-10 

Since then, he's added onto that mark each 
year, catching 25 passes for 405 yards last 
year along with two touchdowns. So far this 
year, he had 16 grabs for 199 yards prior to the 
Tech game and is on his way to his best 
season ever reception-wise. 

The former Bossier High star has 
professional aspects , and he has all the tools. 
He has 4.7 speed in the 40, good moves, and he 
is one of the most sure-handed receivers in 
school history. 

"My father was an All-State player in high 
school," Almond said of his father, who is 
chief of police in Bossier City. "He has always 
made me want to excel to the very top in 
athletics, and I guess wanting to make him 
proud of me has given me most of my drive to 
do well."

Income 9 a P widening 
between men and women 

Despite all the efforts of the last 10 
years, the income gap between men 
and women is widening— not 
lessening— in most areas of the nation. 

According to recent statistics 
received by the Louisiana Bureau for 
Women from the U.S. Department of 
Labor, women working full-time in 1977 
earned about 60 cents to every dollar 
earned by working men. Median in- 
come for women was $8,814 while for 
men it was $15,070. Women were ear- 
ning only 58.5 percent the salary of 

During the last 25 years, women's 
earnings, figured as a percentage of 
men's earnings, have dropped steadily. 
In 1955, fulltime women workers earned 
64 cents to men's one dollar. By 1960 
this figure had dropped to 61 cents. By 
1977, 17 years later it had dropped to 60 
cents, the most recent figures available 

According to date from a survey of 
income and education just released by 
the Bureau of Labor, in 1975, the 
median income of men in Louisiana 
was twice that of women working full- 
time— $12,292 for men as compared to 
$6,128 for aomen. 

Why the gap? During the last decade 
the labor force expanded beyond 
government estimates. A key factor for 
this expansion has been the large influx 
of women workers. The number of 
women holding jobs has grown from 18 
million in 1950 to 42 million in July 1978. 

Of women in the workforce in March 
1978, nearly 80 percent were in clerical 
sales, service, factory or plant jobs. 

"Female workers are heavily con- 
centrated in a few occupational 
categories traditionally thought of as 
"women's jobs', which are underpaid, 
undervalued and underappreciated," 
explains Elizabeth Ducan Koontz. Ms. 
Koontz chairs the National Commission 
on Working Women (NCWW), and is 
the former head of the Department of 
Labor's Women's Bureau. According to 
Koontz, women hold 41 percent of the 
jobs, but do not have their fair share of 
the pay, responsibility of career op- 

Pat Evans, Director of the Louisiana 
Bureau for Women, says, "There is no 
doubt in my mind that women working 
outside the home in such great numbers 
is one of the most fundamental and far 
reaching changes that has taken place 
in this century, Change for women 
means change for everyone." 

Evans adds that the Bureau for 
Women is compelled to call attention t 
this change and o design programs in 
areas of greatest employment need for 

According to Evans, the Bureau acts 
as a catalyst. "Industry bears the 
greatest financial burden for the 
programs we design. We asked them to 
join hands with us in placing women in 
blue-collar jobs. They did. It's as it s 
ould be," she stressed. 

Other sections of the country are 
looking at our program, Evans said 
"When you can talk in terms of five or 
six hundred dollars a placement, you're 
talking sense," she added. 

"I have no patience with waste in 
government," said Evans. The 
Bureau's employment programs are 
small but they serve well and they 
serve clients with dire needs. 

As an example of this, Evans cited 
the Bureau's Displaced Homemakers 
Center. "These women have made 
strong commitments to family. When 
they reach middle age and suddenly 
have no income because of a husband's 
death or divorce, what happens to 
them?", said Evans.

they confront life. But, according to 
Ray Schexnider, "It could be kids 
anywhere, who are daily confronted 
with the awareness of life-the struggle

Remedial education programs such 
as Head Start do little to help children 
because these programs begin too late 
in a child's life to really aid him, ac- 
cording to White. 

"No matter how much money is sp^nt

be slow," said White. 

White advocates education of parents 
in recognizing normal developments in 
their children and in aiding the progre-

caring for their children during the first 
seven months of their children's lives,

development of the children until school 

According to White, if a child feels 
neglected or burdensome to parents, he

factor in the retardation of the child's

have to be rich in doing a nice job

E I Ginko to perform 
November concert 

mma- » 


By Debbie Page 
Current Sauce Editor 

The Entertainment 
Committee recently announced 
that the next concert slated for 
Northwestern will bill the now 
famous, multi-talented band 
EL GINKO for the November 
concert schedule. 

The big name band, which 
consists of two tall people, two 
short people, three goldfish and 
a french poodle, has gained its 
recent popularity from such 
smash hits as "You broke my 
heart so I'll break your leg", 
"Swimming in dirty tank water 
without you," "Take your false 
teeth out Mama, I'm coming 
home to suck your gums," and 
"olease take off my collar, I 
have a date with a pole." 

The group members have no 
lead singer, and they insist upon 
sharing billing and the money 
they receive from their ap- 
pearances. Northwestern will 
be paying them $6,345.39 for 
their performance. When asked 
why the figure was so strange, 
they replied that the 39 cents 
was for goldfish food. 

While interviewing the group 
members, they introduced 
themselves as Lotta Gink, 
Modda Gink, (the tall ones), 
Shrink Gink, Fink Gink, (the 
short ones), Cinny, Phinny, 
Skinny, (the goldfish) and 
Stuffo, (the French Poodle). 

Lotta and Modda did most 
of the talking, with Shrink and 
Fink pulling on my skirt trying 
to get my attention. Cinny, 
Phinny and Skinny had no 
comments except for a few 
glubs now and then, (In 
harmony, of course). 

The group will perform at 
Northwestern on Tuesday, 
November 31, at 11 a.m. 
Classes will not be dismissed 
because University leaders do 
not deem it necessary. 
Entertainment Committee 
members announced that this 
was the only time we could 
book EL GINKO and that we 
were lucky to get that. 
The Committee also 

discussed its decision of 
booking EL GINKO in an open 
meeting last Sunday morning. 

"We had a choice between EL 
GINKO, Bee Gees, the Beatles 
and Grand Funk. We decided on 
EL GINKO because they gave 
us the best deal. The next best 
deal was the Beatles, but they 
were $50.00 more and they 
wanted to perform on a 
weekend night. We were afraid 
to chance spending that much 
more money since no one stays 
here for the weekends and we 
probably wouldn't have as good 
a turnout," said the Committee 

"We figured that, everyone is 
probably tired of those groups 
anyway, since they hear their 
songs on the radio all the time, 
so we decided to go with the 
freshest act," he continued. 

Other members of the 
Committee were unavailable 
for comment as most of them 
have resigned from school and 
left for Southeast Asia and 
other far parts of the world. 

The Entertainment 
Committee is also footing the 
bill for EL GINKO's 
equipment, since Northwestern 
does not have correct facilities 
and EL GINKO doesn't have 
any of their own. This being 
rather strange for a 
professional group, I asked 
why they didn't own equipment. 
They answered that they kept 
being told that no one in his 
right mind would sell equi- 
pment to a group with gold fish 
and a French Poodle. 

EL GINKO'S performance 
will be one in a series of their 
1978 tour. Their Louisiana 
engagements include Zwolle, 
Dry Prong and Shogaloo, with 
three concerts slated for Bunki- 
e. Other American cities on 
their annual tour include 
Benton, Arkansas; Paris, 
Texas; Athens, Texas; Cut and 
Shoot, Texas; Badger, 
Colorado; Peoria, Illinois; 
Kokomo, Indiana; Houna, 
Alaska; and Podunk, Idaho.

Are Soviet Tactics Used 
By U.S. Civil Service? 

cording to Washington 
folklore, presidents are but 
small dogs wagged by a 
giant bureaucratic tail. 
But to the surprise of the 
political pros, President 
Carter won his first battle 
with the bureaucracy. He 
pushed through unwanted 
civil service reforms. 

This should help him get 
a handle on the bureaucra- 
cy. But our sources believe 
he would have done better 
by cleaning out the Civil 
Service Commission. He 
has a secret report in his 
files which tells of civil 
service violations. The re- 
port includes names and 

The most disturbing 
practice we have discov- 
ered in the federal system 
was borrowed from the 
Soviets. We have investi- 
gated reports that govern- 
ment officials have tried to 
ruin the careers of stub- 
born subordinates by or- 
dering them to take psychi- 
atric fitness-for-duty 

The subordinates can be 
required to submit to psy- 
chological examinations. 
If they agree, the tests 
may be stacked against 
them. If they refuse, they 
can be fired for insubordi- 

We have written about 
this nasty practice in the 
past. Now a House sub- 
committee, led by Rep. 
Gladys Spellman,D-Md., 
has documented the story. 

The report has not been 
released, but we have had 
access to it. So far as we 
know, this will be the first 

official acknowledgement 
TJWt me U.S. government 
has used me Soviet tactic 
of branding dissidents as 
mental cases. 

The Spellman report al- 
leges that involuntary psy- 
chiatric examinations 
have been misused to pun- 
ish unpopular employees. 
This has happened, ac- 
cording to me report, on a 
significant number of 

In 80 percent of these 
cases, the immediate su- 
pervisor decided which 
employees needed psychi- 
atric examinations, even 
though me supervisors had 
no medical expertise. 

The report also states 
that the employees have no 
right to examine me re- 
sults of their own psychia- 
tric examinations. The 
only defense they have is to 
submit written reports on 
their own behalf. 

Finally, the report con- 
cludes that the psychia- 
trists are asked to do some- 
thing they are not trained 
to do. They must deter- 
mine whether an employee 
is capable of doing his job. 
Yet the psychiatrists know 
little about the job and 
have been trained only to 
diagnose illnesses. The 
employee, meanwhile, 
must prove his innocence 
or competence. 

Our sources claim that 
the forced fitness-for-duty 
examinations cause more 
psychological damage 
than they prevent.

But at the Army Corps of

were as loose with the 
taxpayers' money as ever. 
Several of them spent a 
week at a Savannah, Ga., 

It was billed as a confer- 
ence, and there were some 
productive work sessions. 
But they brought along 
their wives. And they 
stayed at the luxurious Sa- 
vannah Inn, which offered 
golf, tennis and swimming 
between sessions. 

They also used nearby 
riding stables and fishing 
boats. The festivities in- 
cluded a T-shirt night and 
a country-western buffet, 
complete with live music. 

The brass hats had to 
pay $28 a day out of their 
own pockets to cover their 
wives' expenses. But the 
women were flown to Sa- 
vannah from all corners of 
the country, free of charge. 
In one instance, the Army 
had to send an extra plane 
to carry all the wives.

r f "Pail and Shovel" - 
New concept in 

student government 

Jim Mallon, 22, and Leon Varjlan, 27, began their race for 
student body president and vice-president of the University of 
Wisconsin-Madison atop a giant campaign platform they 
built themselves— out of Popsicle sticks. 

Founding he "Pail and Shovel" party last spring, the two 
jieem to have found a true line of communication to college 
students' feelings about campus politics and college life in 

"All the average student cares about is sex and drugs and 
rock'n'roll, hi that order," says Mallon. 

Working out of a disheveled student union office featuring a 
idling cabinet marked "Toys," Mallon makes a statement 
(bout an issue many student body presidents before him 
have discussed— student apathy. 

"We're happy that students are apathetic, if not, we'd be 
»t of office." 

Now dominating student politics at this campus, which was 
a not bed of anti-war radicalism in the IMO's, the Pail and 
Shovel candidates won 29 of the 36 seats in the student senate 

ers spe- 


nan in- in the latest election, 
nproper j "We have two more than a two-thirds majority now and no 
on gov- me can stop us," Mallon, the new president, stated. 
In the R may be difficult to determine what o stop. Some of he

to be dumping them into a campus fountain, so students could dig

Jaycees Haunted 
House tonight 

The faint-hearted and 
easily-frightened should be 
prepared for one more night of 
terror as the Natchitoches 
Area Jaycees stage the second 
night of their first annual 
Haunted House this evening. 

The Haunted House is being 
held in the Jaycee House loca- 
ted on the Natchitoches Parish 
Fair Grounds and will be open 
from 7 until 10 p.m. Tuesday. 
Admission to the house is 50 
cents per person. 

Steve Weaver, Jaycee 
chairman of the Haunted 
House project said that if this 
is the first year that the local 
Jaycee chapter had staged 
such a project. "We should 
have an outstanding haunted 
house," Weaver said, "and 
we're really out to make 
money this year. Anything we 
make will be pumped back 
into the Haunted House to 
improve it each year." 

The Haunted House features 
six rooms of favorite mon- 

sters, spooks, and nightmares 
along with a booth featuring 
favorite Halloween refresh- 
ments sponsored by the 
Natchitoches Jaycee Jaynes 
Among the attractions that 
will be staged are Dracula, the 
Wolfman, and Mummy, 
Frankenstein Monster and 
other assorted goulies. 

"We are hoping for a big 
turnout for the Haunted 
House," Weaver said, "and 
we guarantee the house will 
feature much more than 50 
cents worth of entertainment 
and surprises."

to speak 

Nov, 6 

Carl Burton Stokes, former 
mayor of Cleveland, Ohio, will 
be at Northwestern State 
University on Monday, 
November 6, to speak as an 
expert in the difficult field of 
urban problems. 

For four years Stokes was a 
leader of the activist, big city 
mayors around the country 
who were attempting to 
secure the massive national 
commitment required to meet 
the urban crisis: keeping a 
city from collapsing under the 
weight of human problems, 
comprehensive services, and 
economic crises. 

Stokes, who is now a com- 
mentator for NBC-NEWS in 
New York, was the first black 
to be elected Chief executive 
of a major American city. 

On April 16, 1971, he stated 
that he would not seek re- 
election to a third term as 
major but rather, for the next 
year, "expand my efforts 
beyond the Cleveland area to 
assist others, particularly the 
locked-in minority groups, to 
better understand their role in 
politics and government." 

In April 1972, after lecturing 
and doing political organizing 
at the community level in 12 
states and 23 cities, Mr. Stokes 
joined New York City's 

Mr. Stokes now produces an 
Urban Journal for the news- 
feature segment of WNBC's 
new two-hour news show. The 
Urban Journal is a mini- 
documentary analyzing urban 
problems in metropolitan New 
York, New Jersey and Con- 
necticut. He also does a daily 
comentary about urban and 
political subjects on NBC 
network radio.

TV Review

By Brian Reason 

With the new fall television 
season barely a month and a 
half old the winners and the 
losers are becoming clear, 
and with Joe Namath and 
Mary Tyler Moore already 
being cancelled one of the 
better shows of the new season 
has to be WKRP in Cincinnati. 

WKRP, which is visible 
every Monday night at 7 p.m. 
on Channel 8, is a show about a 
radio station that changes its 
format from beautiful 
"elevator" music to Top-40 
rock and some of the problems 
encountered along the was. 

The show stars soap-opera 
veteran (Another World, 
Secret Storm) Gary Sandy as 
Andy Travis, the new 
manager who changes the 
show plan. Howard Hesseman 
portrays Johnny Fever, who 
along with Venus Flytrap, 
another disc jockey, helps 
WKRP change to this new 

WKRP in Cincinnati, a 
Mary Tyler Moore Produc- 
tion, should be one of the hits 
of the fall season and 
hopefully will be around for a 
long time.

In all honesty, I have to 
admit at the beginning of this 
article, that I am "hopelessly 
devoted" to Kenny Rogers. 
Both the man and his music 
are very close to my heart. 

Therefore, this review of his 
performance Thursday night 
at the Louisiana State Fair in 
Shreveport is totally biased 
and completely lacking in 

To put it simply— he was 
fantastic! The moment he 
stepped on stage, he put the 
audience under his spell 
(especially the female 
members of the audience) and 
he kept them under that spell 
until the very end of his show. 

Rogers performed many of 
his recent hits including 
"Daytime Friends", "While 
the Feeling's Good", and 
"Lucille", the record that put 
Rogers back at the top of the 
charts, as well as songs from 
his days with the group, The 
First Edition such as "Ruby 
Don't Take Your Love to 

With his mellow voice and 
unique singing style, Rogers 
can handle anything from the 
romantic ballad to the country 
sound. He displayed his 
musical diversity vividly 
during the concert by moving 
from the swinging beat of his 
recent release, "Love or 
■ Something Like It," to one of 
the highlights of the show— his 
soft, moving version of "Sweet 
Music Man". 

In addition to the excellent 
musical quality of the show, 
the energy and personality of 
toe performer himself were

tremendous success ever the

Rogers was relaxed and at

with the audience during his 
performance and he caused 
much excitement when he

frisbees out to his screaming 
fans. He often invited the 
audience to join in his act by 
clapping and singing, and the

cheering, screaming, standing

Delaney, Demons Rip 
Nicholls 28-18 


Sophomore running back Joe Delaney (44) 
tumbles forward for extra yardage Saturday 
night during Northwestern State University's 28-18 
victory over Nicholls State. Wide receiver Jack 
Brittain (2 showing) leads the blocking as a pair of 

Colonels come in for the step. Delaney rushed for 
an incredible 299 yards and scored four 
touchdowns during the contest, setting a new state 
rushing record in the process of leading the 
Demons to the win. 

Sophomore tailback Joe Delaney broke the state collegiate 
single-game rushing record and scored all four Northwestern 
State University touchdowns Saturday as the Demons ran 
past Nicholls State University 28-18. 

Delaney, a 5' 10" 180 pounder from Haughton, had scoring 
runs of 87 and 71 yards on his way to a 28 carry-299 yard 
performance that shattered both the state record of 267 yards 
by Southeastern 's Horace Belton against Delta State in 1974 
and the school record of 194 yards by Mario Cage set in 1973 
against Southeastern. 

The sophomore speedster, who has a 9.4 100 yard dash 
clocking, picked up just 36 yards of his total in the scoreless 
first half of the contest. His first carry in the second half, the 
87 yard touchdown jaunt, was also the first offensive play for 
Northwestern in the third quarter. 

Nicholls came right back after Delaney 's run to take the 
lead on two lightning-quick scoring plays. On the third play 
following the Demon kickoff, Colonel halfback Dwight 
Walker darted 52 yards to paydirt, but Demon Darryl 
Toussaint blocked the extra-point try to leave the score at 7-8. 

Delaney fumbled on the first play after the kickoff, and 
Byron Boyd recovered for Nicholls at the Demon 24. From 
there, quarterback Tim Bailey found flanker Keith Davis 
open and hit him with a perfect scoring pass on first down. A 
pass for the two-point conversion failed, leaving Nicholls 
with a 12-7 lead. 

Demon Roundballers to Host Australian Olympians 

NATCHITOCHES— Northwestern State 
University's 1978-79 basketball squad will 
highlight its pre-season workouts with a 
special exhibition game against the powerful 
Australian National Olympic Team on 
Tuesday, Nov. 7. 

The contest will begin at 7: 30 p.m. in newly - 
refurbished Prather Colsieum on the NSU 
campus, and tickets are on sale at the NSU A- 
luetic Deparment for $1.50 for adults and $1 
for students. 

"This will be one of the best basketball 
teams that's ever played here," said NSU 
head coach Tynes Hildebrand. "From all that 
I've heard about them, they will be an 
outstanding team." 

The Demon squad has only been in official 
workouts for 10 days and will have only about 

seven more days in order to prepare for the 
contest with the Australians. 

"We're not ready to play anybody yet," 
Hildebrand said, "but I've been pleased with 
our workouts so far and I think we'll be ready 
to put on a good show when we play the 
Australian team." 

If previous contest with touring foreign tea 
ms are any indication, the contest is sure to be 
an exciting one. Last year, Northwestern 
hosted the Canadian National Team and lost 
by a score of 119-113, and three years ago the 
Demons dropped a one-point decision to a 
touring team from Czechoslovakia. 

The Demons, coming off a 12-15 season in 
1977-78 against a rugged schedule, have three 
starters back from last year's team. Leading 
the way is Moot-7 junior Frederick Piper, 

who averaged 12.3 points and 12.7 rebounds 
per game last year, the latter figure good 
enough to rank among the national top 20 in 
rebound ing. 

The other returning starters include a 6- 
foot-5 junior Jerry Lewis and Woot-5 

sophomore Jim Hoops. Hildebrand has also 
been high in his praise of returning letterman 
Mike Fyler, a 6-foot-3 senior, 5-foot-ll 
sophomore guard Mike Brey and several 
newcomers to the squad, most notably 6-f oot-4 
freshman Jerry Lynch of Leeaville. 

After Delaney returned the kickoff 34 yards out to t e 
Demon 43, Northwestern put together a 13-play, 57 yard drive 
climaxed by Delaney 's one yard dive into the end zone to 
reclaim the lead 14-12. 

Later in the fourth quarter, the Demons stopped a Nicholls 
scoring threat at the Northwestern 29 yard line. On first 
down, Delaney dashed 71 yards down the sideline for his third 
touchdown. Then, after Rodney Procell recovered a Colonel 
fumble on the kickoff, Delaney went 25 yards downfield and 
into the end zone to close out the Demon scoring . 

Nicholls' final tally came on an eight-yard look-in pass 
from Bailey to Davis with 7:08 left in the contest. Another 
two-point conversion attempt failed. The Colonels never got 
the ball back, as the Demons pieced together a 15-play, 62 
yard drive that ran out the clock. 

A small "crowd" of 8,100 watched Delaney's efforts, which 
in addition to breaking the state rushing record, tied school 
marks for most touchdowns in a game, most points scored 
and most points responsible for. Attendance on the student 
side of Turpin Stadium was described as "sparse" by 
writers covering the contest, as it was obvious that most 
students missed the greatest night any Louisiana collegiate 
back has ever had. 

Almost overshadowed was the running of fullback Brett 
Knecht, who carried for 146 yards in the contest. Knecht and 
Delaney spurred the Demons to a team total of 443 yards on 
the ground, the second-highest total in school history behind 
the 1970 effort of 539 yards rushing against Bishop College. 

"Our offensive line just did a super job," Demon head 
coach A.L. Williams said, adding praise for senior Petey 
Perot, who was shifted from his regular tackle slot o guard to 
shore up a position lacking in depth due to injuries. "Petey 
had a great night, and a lot of times he threw two or three 
blocks on the same play. He and the rest of the line had a lot 
to do with Joe getting loose as often as he did, and all we have 
todc is get him loose a couple of times." 


Rejuvenated Demons 
Face UTA Saturday 

Rejuvenated Northwestern 
State University hits the road 
for the final time in the 1978 
football season Saturday, and 
the Demons will be looking for 
a cure to their road "jinx" 
when they tackle the 
University of Texas-Arington. 

Game time is set for 7:30 
p.m. in Lamar High School's 
Cravens Field in Arlington, 
which is being used by UTA 
until their new football facility 
is completed. The game will 
be broadcast back to the 
Natchitoches area over 
KNOC-AM beginning at 7:15 
p.m. and will be seen on a 
delayed basis over the NSU 
Football Television Network 
flagshipped by WSBC-TV in 

The Demons come into the 
contest with a 4-4 record after 
snapping their four-game 
losing streak last Saturday 
night in a 28-18 victory over 
Nicholls State. All four of 
those losses in that skien came 
on the road, where NSU is 1-4 
on the season. 

The Movin' Mavs of coach 
Bud Elliott sport a 3-6 record, 
but they have won three of 
their last four games after 
dropping their first five 
outings of the season. They 
had a three-game winning 
steak snapped in a 27-7 loss to 
Arkansas State last Saturday 

"People were calling them 
the best 0-5 football team in 
the nation when they lost those 
games early in the year," 
Williams said. "They 
probably were, because they 
were playing close with good 
football teams." 

The Mavs' wishbone attack 
is led by quarterback Roy 
Dewalt, a junior who has 
rushed for a team-leading 661 
yards this year and has also 
thrown for 698 yards on the 
season, giving im 1,359 yards 
in total offense this season. He 
has also rushed for nine TD's 
and thrown for four others. 

The other two top backs in 
that attack are fullback Bill 
McClesky and running back 

Tony Felder, a junior and a 
sophomore who have ac- 
counted for 562 and 371 yards 
respectively, alonr with 
scoring seven touchdowns 
between them. That 
threesome is primarily 
responsible for the Mavs 
accounting for 284.6 yards per 
game on the ground, good 
enough to rank among the 
national leaders. 
Tight end Jerry Woodard with 
12 catches tops a receiving 
corps that also includes split 
end Scott Burt and split end 
Gary Lewis with 11 and 10 
catches respectively. Junior 
linebacker Cliff Odom is far 
and away the leading defender 
on the UTA squad with 104 
tackles on the season. 

"We have played very well 
at home," said NSU head 
coach A.L. Williams, "but on 
the road we haven't done 
much of anything. I can't 
explain it, except that maybe 
we play with more emotion 
and enthusiasm when we're in 
front of our own fans."

Flag Football 

A Kappa Sigma runner looks for daylight during the fraternity division 
finals in the intramural flag football competition Thursday afternoon at 
the intramural fields. The all-college flag football finals were held last 
night in Turpin Stadium in both the men's and women's divisions. 

Seven days of excitement 
took place as the Intramural 
Department held its' annual 
Co-Ed Vollyball activities. 
The first night saw the House 
That Cecil Built defeat Caddo 
while Theta Xi's "A" team fell 
to The Beavers. 

Last year's defending 
champions, The Alpha Con- 
nection found this year's 
competition somewhat dif- 
ferent from that of the past. 
Playing at less than half 
strength, Alpha Connection 
was defeated by the Delta 
Zeta's "B"-Condors. 

Rounding out the opening 
night's competition the 
Baptist Student Union 
defeating the Unknowns, TKE 
winning by default, Phi Beta 
Sigma defeating Sigma 
Kappa-Kappa Alpha, and the 
Glove Club overpowering 
Kappa Sigma. 

As 24 teams were registered 
in this year's Co-Ed event, 
several games were found 
each night of planned com- 
petition. The Bows were 
defeated on the 12th by the 
Glove Club, while Phi Beta 
Sigma advanced through the 

winners bracket to the finals. 

In desperate struggle, the 
Bows slipped its way through 
the loser's bracket by 
defeating BSU, BBI, and the 
Glove Club. 

The finals found Phi Beta 
Sigma undefeated against the 
Bows. The Bows won two 
matches from Phi Beta 
Sigma, but not before the 
maximum six games were 

In the first game of the 
first match it was the Bows 15, 
Phi Beta Sigma 10; second 
game was Phi Beta Sigma 15, 
Bows 11; third game was 
Bows 15, Phi Beta Sigma 12. 
The second match started off 
with a slight lead by Phi Beta 
Sigma winning the first game, 
but with victory at reach, the 
Bows came back winning both 
remaining games taking the 
undefeated Phi Beta Sigma's 
down as well as the Cham- 

The Intramural 
Department wishes the Bows 
congratulations as well as to 
all teams involved in this 
year's hard fought C 
-Ed Vollyball Championships.

The Student Government Association 
unanimously passed Bill No. 30, a bill to 
increase current Potpourri fees, at last 
week's Monday night meeting. 

Mike Gallien, editor of the Potpourri, 
told the SGA that the yearbook has had 
only one increase in the last 30 years. 
That increase was in 1973 when the fee 
was raised from $7 to $10. 

According to Gallien, the Potpourri is 
in a financial bind this year. Since the 
yearbook fee increase did not pass last 
spring, this year's staff must work with 
a smaller budget. He said the volume 
and size of the 1978-79 yearbook has 
been cut so that color photos can be 
used in the book. 

Gallien pointed out that last year's 

Potpourri staff had $10,000 more to 
work with than this year's staff and 

they were able to produce an award- 
winning book. 

"If the Potpourri does not get this 
increase, it will dwindle away and die 
as some college yearbooks have, or it 
will be so reduced that it wouldn't be 
worth looking at," Gallien told the 
Current Sauce in an interview last 

He explained that in 1973 when the 
Potpourri was faced with a similiar 
situation, the book was cut to only 160 

Area businessmen 
talk to students 

Members of the Natchitoches Chamber of Commerce presented a 
question and answer period for students last evening in the Student Union 
Ballroom. Included in the discussion were topics of interest for student 
activities in the area. Speaking above are SUGB members and Ed 
Dranguet, Wayne McCullen, and Dean Fred Bosarge. 

"Publication costs have sky-rocketed 
and we need this $2.50 increase to stay 
alive," the editor said. 

"I hope I don't sound too dramatic, 
but this is the 71st v 
lume of the Potiourri— it's an old 
tradition and I would hate to see it die." 

NSU students will vote on the year- 
book fee increase on Nov. 15. Gallien 
and his staff encouraged all students to 
come out and support the fee increase.

saccharin "must de viewed as a potential cause of cancer in 
humans" not only because it is a weak cancer-causing agent 
itself but because it promotes the cancer-causing activity of 
other substances.

NSU Demon band: 
Something proud 

They have finally put 
together something to be proud 

I don't think it's just new 
uniforms, although, naturally, 
that has a lot to do with it. 

No, it's an overall attitude of 
a large group of students who 
work hard every single week to 
represent Northwestern in the 
best possible way, and who 
rarely get the amount of appre- 
ciation that they truly deserve. 
They are the Demon band, and 
if any group has come a long 
way in one year, this is the 
group that surpasses them all. 

The band is composed of 
several units now. They aren't 
just the instrumentalists, but 
they also include a dance line, a 
flag line, and a majorette line, 
all of whom are very talented 
and very impressive. 

For the first time in a long 
time, I listened— and watched 
with pride the band's 
performance in Shreveport 
when the Demons faced 
Louisiana Tech: The 
comparison of this year and 

s ac 


last year is NO comparison. 
The leaders and members of 
the group have accomplished a 
great deal, not at just the Tech 
game, but at every game thus 
far this seasoa 
I'm also pleased to see the 

band performing at out of town 
games: although there was a 
poor turnout at last weekend's 
NSU vs. Arlington game, the 
band was there, performing an 
excellent pregame show. 

But students are not the only 
people who are making the 
NSU band click this year. 
Concerned and talented faculty 
members are also doing a vast 
amount of coordination to get 
the final effect of the weekly 
halftime performances that 
most of us take so for granted. 
Wayne Blackwell, band 
director; his assistant, Tony 
Smith; and Vicki Parrish, 
danceline director are all 
major links in the total band 

Congratulations, Demon 
band, on putting it all together. 
You truly are a band that we 
are all proud of. DTPage 

Something seems 
to be missing 

As I was sitting at the Nichols 
game last Saturday night, it 
occurred to me that something 
was missing. The small number 
of people in the stadium might 
well ave been predicted; 
however, I cannot excuse the 
lack of spirit shown by the 
student body on this night. 
While it is true that the Demon 
football team had experienced 
a moderate slump, the players 
had the right to expect to be 
applauded when they scored or 
made an outstanding play. 
When I stood up to applaud, I 
felt as if I were alone. I was 
particularly disappointed with 
the students when I saw many 
of them were cheering for the 
other team. 

Lack of interest was agam 
present at halftime, when the 
NSU band and its auxiliaries 
put on a fine performance. Very 

few spectators paid attention to 
the show and even fewer 
aiplauded when it was over. 

If the morale of the students 
is any indication of the quality 
of a university, then it is quite 
odvious that Nortthwestern is 
not the school that it could be. 
NSU can be the best, if only its 
students will get involved. 
Apathy needs to be overcome 
and must be replaced with a 
spirit of unity. I encourage all 
students to take a greater 
interest in campus activities. 
Go to a pep rally.. .Cheer at a 
football game... Vote in the 
upcoming election... Join a 
committee... Support your 
school. It is only through 
working together that we can 
make NSU a better place for all 
of us.

petroleum industry has 
plenty of protectors in 
Washington who are al- 
ways eager to demonstrate 
their devotion to the cause. 

The oil companies are 
constantly asking the fed- 
eral regulators for special 
breaks. More often than 
not, the regulatory authori- 
ties have granted the 

The Transportation 
Department, for example, 
has waived safety regula- 
tions at the request of Gulf, 
Shell and Texaco. The Inte- 
rior Department has 
granted literally hundreds 
of offshore drilling waivers 
for the 10 largest oil com- 

Now, the big oil outfits 
are trying to hide their 
huge profits. In the past, 
the government regulators 
have accepted the finan- 
cial information that the 
coiTipanies wanted to pro- 

But some Energy De- 
partment officials wanted 
to take a closer look at 
corporate profits. They 
prepared a financial re- 
porting form, which would 
pry the information out of 
the oil companies. 

The officials submitted 
the proposed form to the 
White House for approval. 
It got lodged in the Office 
of Management and Budg- 
et. Our sources say the oil 
"tycoons pulled strings in- 
side the White House to 
keep the form pigeonholed. 

Nobody could pry it loose 
for several months. Final- 
ly, an enraged congress- 
man, Rep. John Dingell, D- 
Mich., demanded the re- 
lease of the controversial 

form. He finally blasted it 
out of the White House. 

But President Carter's 
management chief, James 
Mclntyre, riddled the form 
with loopholes. He ex- 
empted two oil companies, 
Aramco and Caltex, from 
reporting their finances. 
He also ruled that the other 
oil companies need not fur- 
nish back financial data as 
the form originally 
required. They must 
merely submit limited in- 
formation for the years 

The oil barons, apparent- 
ly, still have friends inside 
the White House. 

95th Congress has passed 
into history, but it has left 
behind a stack of legisla- 
tion. Much of it was passed 
during the end-of-the ses- 
sion rush. The action was 
too fast for the public to 

The experts are still 
digging through the fine 
print, searching for the 
hidden giveaways which 
were buried in the tax bill 
that was passed during the 
closing confusion. 

The bill has been bal- 
lyhooed as a big break for 
the workers. But it is the 
wealthy who will benefit 
the most. There are golden 
giveaways buried in the 
fine print for airlines and 
railroads. Stockbrokers 
will also get special bene- 

One incensed tax expert, 
Rep. Charles Vanik, D- 
Ohio, has ordered a com- 
puter analysis of the tax 
bill. The results are star- 
tling. For 88 percent of the 
taxpayers, the overall re- 
duction will be no more 
than $300. This will be 

offset by the Social Secur- 
ity tax increase. 

Capital gains taxes were 
cut, ostensibly to help 
small businessmen. But 41 
percent of the capital gains 
benefits will go to people 
earning more than $200,000 
a year 

Most Americans, mean- 
while, will actually end up 
paying more taxes. This is 
the way Congress re- 
sponded to the tax rebel-

high as $75,000.

BLOOD RESULTS IN — A total of 148 pints of 

blood was collected during the October 25-26 NSU Bio

drive, which was sponsored by the Shreveport Regional 
Blood Center in coordination with Northaestern's Student 
Government Association. 


COURSES — A Northwestern State University doctoral 
student from SUdell has been awarded grants for $3,550 to 
complete a dissertation on the free enterprise course that 
was mandated nearly two years ago by the Louisiana 
Legislature. Mrs. Barbara Allen Stoker received a $2,950 
grant from the Champion Spark Plug Company and a $600 
award from the Louisiana Council on Economic Education to 
conduct a field experiment which she hopes will show how the 
course affects the attitudes and rates of achievements of high 
school students who are being required by law to take the 
special course. More than 1,300 high school 
students in 57 schools across the state are participating in 
Mrs. Stoker's research project, which recently passed the 
pre-test phase. Mrs. Stoker said, "I want to see if the free 
enterprise course is in keeping with the spirit of the new law. 
I am interested in seeing if a better understanding of the free 
enterprise system is changing the attiudes from negative to 

Wells, assistant archivist at Northwestern, is the author of an 
article which appears in the current issue of "Louisiana 
History." The article, entitled "Extinguishing the Lights: 
1861," relates the story of the lighthouses at the mouth of the 
Mississippi River at the outbreak of the Civil War. Aside 
from explaining the stetgic policies of the Federal and 
Confederate governments which curiously coincided in this 
one area, the article provides an interesting insight into the 
concerns of the lighthouse keepers. Mrs. Wells serves on the 
staff of the Division of Archives In Eugene P. Watson 
Memorial Library at NSU. She is also associate editor for the 
"Southern Studies" journal and newly-established NSU 
Press. The Northwestern assistant archlsist has contributed 
numerous articles for publication in journals focusing on 
history and gardening. 

PROFESSORS GO TO WACO - Two professors from NSU 
will present a research paper in Waco, Tex., this week at the

Those are Stephen Crane's words. And they 
pretty well sum up the American spirit. A 
spirit of fending for yourself, working out 
your own destiny. Sure, we have ways to help 
the poor, the sick, the under-privileged. But 
basically the American Free Enterprise sys- 
tem savs that you can be whatever you want 
to be if you work hard enough and if you're 
good enough. Free Enterprise works-. And it

Unique group 
provides music — 

The NSU Entertainers are a very unique group. Besides 
providing entertainment for Northwestern students and fa- 
culty, they plan an important role in the recruitment 
program of the school. 

Under the direction of Dr. William Hunt of the Music dep- 
artment, the musical group travels extensively throughout 
Louisiana and parts of Texas. The group performs at high 
schools, conferences, conventions, and pageants in an effort 
to attract prospective students to Northwestern. 

A total of 14 students combine their musical talents to the 
make up the "well-known" NSU Entertainers. Members of 
the band include Leigh Wood, keyboard; Richard Rudd, 
bass; Alan Evans, drums; Paul Shelton, lead guitar, and 
Sam Halphen, lead guitar. 

Rick Mason, Vickie Corley, and Mac McFarland make up 
the horn section of the group. Vocalists are Gloria Alford, 
Julee Bowden, Venetia Lee, Zina Curlee, and Jamie Sanders. 
Also Randy Walker is in charge of the soundboard. 

The Entertainers sing and play songs from the "top 40" 


This talented group has performed at several football 
games, already this year. Upcoming on their calendar will be 
a show at the Natchitoches Christmas Festival in December. 

According to Dr. Hunt the group members were selected 
through a series of try outs in the spring and summer. "The 
group works hard and has come to be known as a part of 
Northwestern. Everyone is proud of w at they have done for 
NSU," commented Hunt. 

Concert Review 

Audience goes wild 
over ConFunk Shun 

By Robbie Lee 

A secret contest of who 
could scream the loudest 
seemed to be the situation at 
the Con Funk Shun concert 
Oct. 26, at Prather Coliseum. 

Con Funk Shun is one of the 
leading black groups in the 
nation. According to lead 
singer Mike Cooper this 
recognition took nine long 
years of hard work and 

All the members of the 
group are from San Fran- 
cisco, California where they 
started as a group playing for 
high school and college parties 
from 1969-1970. 

Mike Cooper stated that 
their first record to be 
released was "Tamberine 
Man" which didn't go over 
with the public. 

"Sure Feels Good To Me" 
was the group's first hit 

"F-Fun was the group's first 
gold record and "Secrets" 
their first gold album. 

The group had three tours in 
1978 which were the Bootss, 
The Commodores and the 

According to most of the 
Students Con Funk Shim's 
performance on stage was 
terrific. The Group opened 
their performance with the hit 
single "Con Funk Shunize". 
They also sang their latest 
recording "Your Love Makes

Demons Happy To Be Home After 
Rugged Road Schedule Ends 

by Dong Ireland 

Current Sauce 8 ports Editor 

ARLINGTON Tex.— "On the road to ..nowhere, it 
looks like for the Demons, because Northwestern 
has had its' share of problems away from home," 
read one press release last week before NSU's 
battle with Texas-Arlington. Those problems 
continued to plague the Demons in their road 
contests this year as they suffered a 30-7 defeat here 
Saturday night. 

North western 'a loss was the fifth of the season for 
the Demons, and all five of those losses have been 
■way from home. Fortunately for head coach A.L. 
Williams, the two remaining games on this season's 
schedule are to be played within the very friendly 
confines of Turpln Stadium where NSU is 11-2 since 
the facility was completed in 1976. 

The Demons didn't take long to show any doubters 
that yes, indeed, there is such a thing as a "road 
jinx" in the game against UTA. Starting 
quarterback Rex Henderson had his first pass 
attempt intercepted by the Movin' Mavs Greg 
Wright at the NSU 44, and after intended receiver 
James Bennett was flagged for grabbing Wright's 
face mask, UTA had it at the 29. 

From mere, fullback Bill McClesky rambled up 
the middle on first down for the score. After Roy 

Skoruppa added the PAT the Mavs led 7-0. 
Unbelieveably, that was the only Mav tally in the 
first half as t h ey failed to capitalise on 
four pass thefts. 

The Demon defense played one of its' best halves 
of the season during the first 30 minutes , holding 
the Mavs to the lone touchdown and stopping 
scoring threats inside the NSU 20 on three separate 

The only poins for the Demons came after Arthur 
Pickens recovered one of eight Movin' Mav 
fumbles, halting a UTA scoring hreat at the 10. A 47- 
yard touchdown pass from Kenny Philibert to 
record-breaking wide receiver Mike Almond 
climaxed the six-play, 90 yard drive, and Dennis 
Pender graft tied the contest at 7-7 with his PAT kick 
late in the second quarer. 

It was all UTA in the second half, as the Demons 
were unable to put the brakes on the Movin' Mav 
Wishbone attack, which rolled to 581 toal yards on 
the night . UTA came in the contest with the nation's 
eighth-ranking rushing offense, sporting a 284 yard 
form, and did nothing to hurt that figure as they 
ground out 481 yards on 70 carries. 

The Mavs scored on their first two possessions of 
the third quarter, on a 16-yard run by Tony Felder 

and an eight-yard Phillip Jessie jaunt. Jessie picked 
up 163 yards rushing on only 12 totes, while Felder 
added 116 on 21 carries. 

Early in the final stanza Skoruppa popped a 30- 
yard field goal try through the uprights to make it 
24-7, andwithover four minutes left Felder ended an 
eight-play 80-yard march with a one-yard run on 
fourth-and-goal. Skoruppa missed the extra point 
after an offsides penalty against UTA. 

NSU could only reach the Mav 33 in the final half, 
as a fired-up crew of UTA defenders held the 
Demons to minus 14 yards rushing after the 

The total of six interceptions suffered by 
Northwestern broke the old school record of five set 
against Southern Mississippi in 1949 and tied in 1971 
against La. Tech. Henderson had four interceptions 
before completing his only pass on the night late in 
the final quarter. 

The only real high point of the contest offensively 
for NSU was again tailback Joe Delaney, who 
rushed for 99 yards, all of those coming in the first 
half of play. Delaney smashed school and state 
records with a 299-yard, four-touchdown 
performance last week against Nicholls State. 


Senior defensive tackle Willie Washington looks 
just a little tired of last Saturday night's 30-7 loss 
to the University of Texas at Arlington. 
Washington was the leading tackier for the 
Demons in the contest, as he grabbed Movin' 
Mavs boll carriers 14 times during the game.

Greeks claim Intramural flag football championship 

by Doug Ireland 

Current Sauce Sports Editor 

It was "Monday Night Football," Northwestern style, last 
Monday night under the lights at Turpin Stadium as the 
Greek teams took top honors in both divisions of the All- 
College Flag Football Championships. 

With their victories, the ladies of Sigma Kappa and the 
men of Kappa Sigma earned a trip to New Orleans and a 
berth in the Louisiana Intramural Flag Football 
Championships to be held in early December. 

In the women s' division, Sigma Kappa won a defensive 
struggle with the East Sabine VIP's by a 6-0 score, w ile the 
mens' contest was an offensive show with the Kappa Sigma 
squad outlasting the independent Condors by a 28-22 count. 

The only score in the girls' battle was a 32-yard pass-runn 
play from Gwen Holt to Mel Van early in the second half. The 
touchdown was set up when the tough Sigma Kappa defense 
pinned the VIP's deep in East Sabine territory at the IS yard 
line on the initial offensive series of the second half. 

East Sabine's Katrina Myers, who was named the contest's 
Most Valuable Player, had her 33 yard punt returned to the 
VIP 42. Four plays later Holt, facing a fourth and 12 situation, 
lofted the pass to Van, who caught it at the 20 and outraced 
the VIP defenders to the end zone. 

The conversion failed, but it didn't matter as the VIP's only 
had the ball for five more plays before they were forced to 
punt. Nanette Hawthorne and Holt keyed a 15-play, 43 yard 
drive which ran out the clock. The drive was kept alive at one 
point by a fourth-down roughness penalty against East Sab- 
ine that gave the winners an automatic first down. 

Action in the mens' championship tilt was fast and furious 
from the beginning. Both teams came into the game with 
undefeated records, the Condors sporting a 7-0 slate and the 
Sigs with an impressive 11-0 mark. 

The contest's first play set the pace, as Condor quarter- 
back David Evans saw his pass batted up in the air and 
picked off by Sig lineman Mark Connely. Kappa Sigma's 
early threat came to a quick end, though, when Ed McFather 

stopped signal caller Randy Bonnette's fourth-down 
scramble at the nine-yard marker. 

After Kappa Sigma's Joe Papa halted a Condor drive with 
an end zone interception of a fourth-and-goal Evans pass, 
BonnetteedcBonnette came back to hit Mark Manuel with a 
three-yard scoring toss to culminate a ten-play, 76 yard 
march. The two-point conversion pass from Bonnette to Mike 
Barton was good, and the Sigs had a short-lived 8-0 lead. 

The Condors tied it ui two plays later when Major Lytton 
hauled in an 80 yard touchdown bomb from Evans, and then 
threw the conversion pass to Gary Griggs. The Condors 
struck again after Kenny Clark intercepted Bonnette on 
second down and carried it down to the Sig eight, and a four- 
yard tackling penalty moved the ball to the four-yard line. 
Evans hit Leroy Hoteling for the score on the final play of the 
half to make it 14-8. 

Kappa Sigma regained the lead when Bonnette, who was 
named the game's MVP, tallied from seven yards out and 

then hit Manuel with the conversion pass. The Condors came 
right back and went ahead for the last time when Evans 
found Lytton with a three-yard touchdown pass, and Lytton 
hit Lamon Marchbanks for the two points for a 22-16 lead. 

Then, with just two minutes left In the contest, Bonnette 
tied it up at 22-all with a nine-yard scoring strike to Lynn 
Keyes. A Sig pass for toe go-ahead conversion failed. 

The Condors gambled at their own 31 on fourth-and-nine, 
but another Evans to Lytton completion only picked up seven 
and Kappa Sigma took over. Two Bonnette to Barton passe! 
gained 13, and on third down Bonnette dashed 16 yards for I 
crucial first down. 

On first down from the nine Bonnette found Barton open in 

the left corner of the end zone and hit him with the game- 
winning pass with just 18 seconds remaining in regulation 
play. A run for the conversion failed, but so did the Condon' 
last-ditch efforts to score as time expired. 

Kappa Sigma Fraternity won the all-college flag football championship 
last Monday night wih a 28-22 win over the Condors in the finals played in 
Turpin Stadium. Members of the winning team included (front row, 1. to

Basketballers battle Aussie Olympians 

The Australian Olympic Basketball Team 
that Northwestern State University's Demons 
will be facing in their pre-season exhibition 
game tonight night won't exactly be a bunch 
of pushovers. 

In fact, NSU head coach Tynes Hildebrand 
said that the Australian team could be one of 
the best basketball teams the Demons have 
ever faced in pre-season competition. 

"This team has four or five high quality 
players," Hildebrand said, "and all of them 
are experienced in international competition. 
They will be a very good test for our squad 
this early in the season." 

The contest is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. in 
Prather Coliseum on the NSU campus. 

Tickets are $1.50 for adults and $1 for students 
and are available at the NSU athletic, 
department or by calling 357-5891. 

The Australian squad will be in the middle 
of a whirlwind 15-game tour in only 27 days 
during the month of November. They opened 
their tour on Friday night against powerful 
LSU at Baton Rouge and will also be playing 
Centenary, McNeese State, Southeastern La., 
Xavier and Southern during the tour, which 
includes games in seven Southern states. 

The team, which is coached by Dr. Werner 
Linde, one of the greatest players in 
Australian history, has won a total of 13 
national titles including toe national cham- 
pionship in each of the last too seasons. 

"From all we can gather, they have some 
tremendous individual talent," Hildebrand 
said. "We'll be playing a lot of people, and I 
hope we can put some combinations on the 
floor that will slow them down a little." 

The Aussies are led by captain Laurie 
Harcus, a 6-5 forward who toured with this 
same squad during its 1972 tour of the United 
States. He has been a member of this squad 
since 1972 and won the Woollacott Medal, 
South Australia's highest award, in 1976. 

Other squad members include 6-8 center 
Rick Hodges, called the best big man in 
Australian basketball, and six-foot guard Phil

Demons also hold an 11-2 
record at home over the past 
three seasons. 

It's hard to explain , said 
NSU head coach A.L. 
Williams. "We just seem to 
play much better when we're 
at home than we do on the 
road. I know our fans and our 
field helps, but the difference

Both the Demons and the 
Cajuns are coming off 
disappointing losses last 
weekend. USL, which holds a 
2-6 record on the year, fell in a 
hard-fought 16-6 loss to 
Arkansas State, while NSU 
dropped a 30-7 decision to 

In the Cajuns' loss to ASU, 
Southwestern was limited to 
- only 95 yards in total offense, 
with only 18 yards of that total 
coming on the ground. The 

only scoring mustered by the 
Cajuns were field goals of 20 
and 45 yards by stellar kicker 
John Roveto. 

The Cajuns sport a balanced 
attack, averaging 107.6 yards 
per game on the ground and 
104.1 in the air. However, their 
offense has only been ac- 
counting for an average of 10.1 
points per outing. 

Leading that offense is 
sophomore quarterback 
David Guidry, who has hit on 
30 of 72 passes for 491 yards 
and four touchdowns this year 
along with throwing five in- 
terceptions. He helped lead 
the Cajuns to their two wins 
aith off-the-bench per- 
formances but has been 
starting in recent games. 

Guidry's favorite targets 
include sophomore split end 
Rodney Smith and junior split 
end David Gray. Smith leads 
the team with 15 catches for 
343 yards and two scores, 
while Gray has 14 grabs for 
161 yards.

The Louisiana Student Advisory 
Council, in its monthly meeting held 
last Thursday, voted to opose^the 
proposed tuition increase for the spring 
and fall semesters of 1979. 

The Council, which is composed of 
Student government Association 
president!""" from each Louisiana 
university except for LSU, discussed 
several student- oriented issues, in- 
cluding the investigation of the increase 
of academic scholarships, the state 
university housing policy, and the 
tuition increase. 

John McKellar, Northwestern SGA 
president and representative to Jhe 
Board, discussed the Board's decision 
in an interview Monday morning. In the 
past, when tuition increases have been 
passed, the legislature has decreased 
its financial support of each univeristy, 
so that the financial position stays the 
same, in spite of the tuition increase.

'No extra holidays' 

Bienvenu announces why 

by Debbie Page 

The Student Government Association 
made a final effort to lengthen the 
Thanksgiving holidays last night at 
their weekly meeting by passing Senate 
Bill Number 34 urging President 
Bienvenu to declare Monday and 
Tuesday as holidays. 

They took the bill one step further by 
personally taking it to the Bienvenu 
home Monday night following their 

Though the welcome^a^s warm, the 
result was still a three — day holiday, 
dispelling for good all rumors that NSU 
students would have a full week of 
holidays for Thanksgiving. 

"Ya'll shocked me with this, I'm 
really surprised ! " joked Bienvenu upon 
reading the bill, which stated that 

students were "mentally and 
physically exhausted." "Do you know 
that we have the longest holidays of 
colleges and universities in 

Bienvenu explained that the shor- 
tened holidays were part of his 
academic excellence program, adding 
that "I'm proud of you academically. If 

least number of hours required and he 
wanted to change that. Suwndlyj he 
said he was tired of the school's 
reputation of being the vacation school 
that never has classes. 

"When we sat down last spring we 
tried to figure out when you would need 
a break. We decided to do it this way, 
because you'll still have almost a 
month for Christmas, and you'll get 

you can last two more days I know you <|ut in early May. 

can make it." Those two days are 
Monday and Tuesday. 

The President admitted that he had 
strongly considered addijhe two days 
to the holiday calendar, but made his 
decisn based on two things: One, he 
tried to figure out the number of days 
needed for equivalency of reputable 
courses. Before this year NSU had the 

"I appreciate you coming, but I just 
can't go along with it." 

SGA Treasurer Alton Burkhalter 
quipped that the holidays would put the 
NSU President higher on the Gallup 
poll, but even that was not good enough. 
"I don't need to be higher on the Gallup 
poll" laughed Bienvenu. " I need to do 
what's best for you and this school." 

Campus news brief a 

has announced the following interviews for middle 
November. On Nov. 15, Guaranty Bank and Trust Co., will 
interview management trainees. Also on Nov. 15, Burroughs 
Industries will be on campus to talk with graduates in 
business administration or a related degree. Appointments 
should be made in the Placement Office located in room 305

Americans representing four Indian tribal groups in 
Louisiana are being trained at Northwestern State

participation in the nine-month training program. The

No more fees 


In he next year a proposed 
$50.p§Q tuition increase may 
come into effect for every 
student at Northwestern. 
According to the Student 
dvisory Council, which is 
.prtjewte A b y a»student*from 
every university in Louisiana 
except LSU, the Louisiana 
State Board of Trustees is 
trying to pass a $50>t> tuition 
increase, beginning with $25^ 
in the spring semester and an 
additional $25.00 in the fall. 

The board contends that the 
money is needed for various 
reaso ns— Inflationary finanrial 
costs' teacher pajMncreases^ 


Granted, the money is needed 

for those things, especially 
raises for instructors, but... 

A few years ago, an increase 
of the same type was passed by 
the Board, and students began 
paying the increase and have 
continued to do so. Yet, at the 

same time, state allocations to 
each university dropped 
percentage wise, making each 
university receive an overall 
average of about the same 
amount of money that they 
received before the increase. 

In other words, the only 
difference made in funds was 
who was paying them and how 

Personally, I don't want to 
have to pay more money next 
semester, and though I 
probably won't be here beyond 
spring, I don't think it's fair that 
students have to start paying 
that much more money if the 
state is, eventually, going to 
reduce their financial support. 

The President is doing his job 
to help stop inflation. Maybe 
it's time, we do the same, since 
by increasing fees noVone is 
getting ahead. As studenls, let's 
work to make it known that the 
buck stops here. 



Britain to Pay U.S. 
But U.S. Taxpayer 

Thanks Dr.Bienvenu 

Dr. Bienvenu, how can we say 

How can I explain the sense of 
pride I feel every time I attend 
a state wide meeting of student 
leaders and witness the unique 
importance given to student 
opinion at Northwestern? 

It is so easy to take for 
granted the simple rights that 
we enjoy, like being listened to, 
and alked to. 

All too often university 
Presidents treat students like 
enemies, rather than 
teammates working for a 
comman goal. 

How much easier it is for us 

to function when we are given 
the cooperation and respect 
that you give us. 

But the greatest thing that 
you have given us is enthusiasm 
After the quick start this 
semester had in September, the 
days of October have had a 
sobering effect on campus 
morale. And through it all, your 
positive smile and words of 
encouragement have been, the 
force that has kept us gb'ing 

It is not enough, but thanks. 
You make us believe, and you 
are right; the good days are 
just ahead. J. McKellar 

Holidays move mail 

ZiP code no longer moves the 

As a matter of a fact, I'm 
beginning to wonder if anything 
moves the mail anymore. The 
only thing I even see affecting 
t e mail anymore is holidays. 

Holidays, holidays, holidays. 
I'm going to decorate my post 
office box for Christmas so that 
the cobwebs can have some 

It isn't that I dislike the NSU 
postal 'service. Quite honestly 
I'm just jealous. But how can 

you nate something just 
because they have a smart 
system? (They have to be 
smart- last week they had a 
three day work week; we can 
t even get an extra two days for 
Thanksgiving ! ) 

All I have to say is, can you 
let us in on the secret? Surely 
there is SOME way we can cash 
in on all these holidays, too. 

The only drawback of course, 
is all that homework. Three 
days of piled up mail is almost 
as bad as a' twenty page term 
paper. But there' is a big 
difference. We don't get paid. 

combines sometimes seem 
more eager to drill tax 
loopholes than oil wells. 
This is quite understand- 
able, since the loopholes 
often bring greater returns 
than the gushers. 

Tax breaks, like oil 
wells, are also often lo- 
cated in unexpected 
places. A little-noticed tax 
treaty with Britain, \ for 
example, may soon con- 
tain a multimillion-dollar 
loophole - if the oil lobby 
has its way. 

Under the treaty, Britain 
would pay at least $350 
million in tax rebates to 
U.S. multinational corpo- 
rations, plus a guaranteed 
$85 million a year 

This might appear on the 
books as British benev.a-^ 
lence. But the Americ 
taxpayers would pay for it 
indirectly. In return for the 
tax rebates to American 
firms, British companies 
would get a tax break in 
this country. 

Among the biggest bene- 
ficiaries of the compli- 
cated arrangement would 
be the international oil 
companies, who would es- 
cape certain domestic tax- 
es. They have pulled out all 
the stops, therefore, to 
push the proposition. 

The oil firms operate on 
a more exalted level than 
most other special inter- 
ests. Armand Hammer, 
the grand old man of Occi- 
dental FetroleuTOK ' 
example, wrote a private 
letter directly to Treasury 
Secretary Michael Blu- 

The letter was intended 
for Blumenthal's eyes 

only, but we have obtained 
a copy. 

Hammer addressed the 
letter/to "Dear Mike." The 
oil tycoons, it seems, are 
always on a first-name ba- 
sis with political leaders. 
"I enjoyed our chance 
meeting at Tip's office," 
he began, amiably. Tip, of 
course, would be House 
Speaker Thomas "Tip" 

, The oil magnate brought 
up the British tax treaty. 
He explained that he had 
already given President 
Carter his views on the 
treaty "during our lunch." 
He went on to drop two 
other big names before he 
finished the letter. He men- 
tioned that Sens. Russell 
Long, D-La., and Alan 
Cranston, D-Calif., shared 
his favorable opinion of the 
Treaty provision. 

It was a simple, friendly 
letter. But it may be worth 
millions to Occidental 
Petroleum. It has been this 
kind of quiet, chummy lob- 
bying that has permitted 
the oil men to escape pay- 
ing uncounted billions - 
thanks to tax loopholes. 

Pentagon Pipeline: 

Some of our fighting men^ 
are in a mutinous mood 
over their headgear. The 
Special Forces wear green 
berets; soldiers in the elite 
tank brigades often wear 
black berets; and the para- 
chuting infantrymen of the 
82nd Airborne Division 
^V m m .purple,, berets .. 

NowTmT^ort Hood, Tex- 
as, the soldiers have taken

Bernard Rogers, the Army

chief. He has issued an 
order banning all of the 
distinctive headgear, ex- 
cept for the Special 
Forces' green berets. The 
order has raised a howl 
from the troops who re- 
gard their fancy hats as a 
source of pride. 

The general has agreed 
to listen to their com- 
plaints. But our fashion 
consultants in the Penta- 
gon believe the colorful hat 
styles are out. There is 
absolutely no hope, they 
say, for the stetsons. The 
general would like to ban- 
ish all cowboy hats to dude 

- The military brass, 
meanwhile, go on wasting 
the taxpayers' money. The 
Army, for example, paid 
$400 million for a new fleet 
of tanks with possibly 
faulty engines. 

The lightweight gas tur- 
bine engines, experts say, 
might break down under 
battlefield conditions. Dur- 
ing tests, dirt and sand 
• kept filtering through the 
engine seals and grinding 
the engines to a halt. 

The Army generals were 
warned about the defect, 
but they claimed the tanks 
were desperately needed. 
So they went ahead with a 
$400 million order for ma- 
chines that can be stopped 
with a little dirt and sand. 

- Both the United States 
and the Soviet Union have 
agreed that in case of war, 
nerve gas should be 
ri Dannea. ■ Tncr'-w^ap^n is 
considered too diabolical 
for one country to use 
against another. But Pen- 
tagon planners don't trust 
the Russians. They have 
ordered the distribution of 

nearly 2 million units of 
nerve gas antidotes to 
American servicemen - 
just in case the Russians 
do not live up to their part 
of the bargain. 

Operation Intercept: 
Ugandan dictator Idi Amin 
has launched a sinister 
psychological warfare pro- 
gram against his own peo- 
ple and those Ugandans 
who choose to seek refuge 
in the United States. 

Amin's thugs have been 
stationed at post offices 
across the country and in- 
structed to intercept and 
open mail addressed to or 
from the United States. 
Money or valuables found 
in the mail are often pock- 
eted by the dictator's men, 
and the letters of Ugandan 
citizens are carefully

Blood drive commended 

Dear Editor, 

The stories and ads in which 
you featured the annual fall 
N.S.U. blood drive were ex- 
cellent and very much ap- 
preciated by the blood center. 
Good coverage in the 
newspaper is important to the 
success of any blood drive. 

I also want to use your 
column to thank all of the 

students and faculty members 
who donated blood. The 148 
units that were collected 
played an important part in 

our community blood supply 
in North Louisiana. 

A pint of blood can mean the 
success of an operation, an 
exchange transfusion for a 
newborn baby, recovery from 

an accident perhaps the very 
breath of life. We at the blood 

center are extrememly 
grateful to the 148 individuals 
who contributed to the N.S.U. 
fall blood drive.

Jerry Lewis gunned in 18 points and Northwestern State 
University took advantage of a cold-ahooting South 
Australian National Team Tuesday night as the Demons 
rolled to an 82-62 win in a pre-season exhibition basketball 

Lewis hit on nine of 18 shots from the floor and scored 12 
points in the second half to lead three Demons in double 
figures in the contest. Frederick Piper added 11 points and 
Mike Fyler contributed 10. 

The Australians, in the fourth game of a tour across the 
South and winless in those four contests, hit a poor 38.2 
percent from the floor in the contest, including a 32.1 percent 
ratio in the first half when NSU spurted out to a 38-24 lead. 

"We played pretty consistent ball in the first half," said 
NSU head coach Tynes Hildebrand. "We didn't turn the ball 
over much, and when we got our shots we made them." 

The Australian squad, which has already lost to LSU, 
Centenary and McNeese State in the past five days, also had 
three twin digit scorers with player-coach Laurie Harcus 
leading the way with 13 points and Rick Hodges and Phil 
Smyth adding 11 each. 

The taller Demons, who outrebounded the Aussies 54-33 in 
the contest, never trailed in the contest, jumpingout to a :2-3 
lead in the first six minutes. NSU led by as many as 17 points 
in the first half at 26-9 when Anthony Robertson hit a layup at 
the seven-minute mark. 

The halftime margin stayed intact and never sunk below 10 
points in the final 20 minutes, and the Demons put the game 
away in a four-minute spurt late in the game in which they 
outscored the visitors 14-4. 

The Demons' biggest lead came only 29 seconds before the 
end of the contest after NSU cleared the bench, and Rorer 
Nolan's jumper at that time made it a 22-point margin at 80- 

Piper, the nation's seventh leading returning rebounder 
among Division I players, led all boarders in the contest with 
11 to help the Demons roll to that big rebound difference. 
NSU ranked in the top ten in the nation last year in rebound 
margin over their opponents.

i the Lady Demon-Fort

Si Nolen was able to play 
1 17 of her charges ex-

raced to a 41-2 halftime bulge. 
It was 39-fl before Fort Polk 
scored on two free throws by 
Cathy Gamble with 57 seconds

Gamble also made the only 

field goal in the game for the 
visitors, who shot a miserable 
3.8 percent (1-26) from the 
field during the scrimmage. 
The Lady Demons, on the 
other hand, hit 47 percent 
from the fied and 
outrebounded their opponents

Joan Darbonne led the

Darbonne hit on seven of nine

scorers for NSU. Marilyn 
Gates, Brenda Stiles, and 
Darlene Hawthorne each 
grabbed nine rebounds to tie 
for the lead in that departnent. 

"I was happy with our 
hustle on the court," Nolen 
said. "We did a good job on 
our press and on our fast 
break, and we showed a lot of 
enthusiasum. It was good that 
we were able to get everybody 
some game experience, and I 
think everybody did a good job 
today," she stated. 

The Lady Demons will 

scrimmage Fort Polk again 
this weekend before opening 
the season in New Orleans 
Nov. 24 against Tulane. The 
first regular season home 
game for the squad will be 
Nov. 30, when they host 
Northeast Louisiana. 

The Lady Demons almost 
stole the show from their male 
counterparts, Tynes 
Hildebrand's Demon 
basketball team— but not 
quite. The Demons looked 
very impressive in their in- 
tersquad games, demon- 
strating a tenacious defense 
and a soft shooting touch. 

The Demons were divided 
into three different squads for 
the round-robin type scrim- 
mage, which consisted of a 
series of ten minute games 
between alternating op- 

Junior Fred Piper 
dominated play with a perfect 
11 for 11 shooting performance 
from the field during the af- 
ternoon. Piper led his team to 
wins in all but one of their 
many games in the scrim- 

Point guard Mike Brey also 
was impressive, turning in a 

fine defensive effort to go aong 
with his 10 point, eight-assist 
offensive showing. Jerry 
Lewis had 12 points and five 

Jim Hoops, who along with 
Piper and Lewis is a returning 
starter, hit five of seven shots, 
grabbed seven rebounds, and 
sank his only two free throws 
for a 12 point outing. Hoops' 

younger brother Mike, a 
freshman, was two for two 
shooting from the field. 

Three other freshman 
recruits were standouts in 
Saturday's action. Benjaman 

Dunn, a 6'5" forward from 
Grambling, hit five of seven 
shots, as did Minden High 
graduate Andre Bailey. 
Leesville's Jerry Lynch was a 
perfect six for six for the af- 
ternoon, and more than held 
his own under the boards. 

"It was the most impressive 
scrimmage we've had here in 
a long while," Hildebrand 
said. "I was pleased that 
everybody hustled and really 
put a tremendous amount of 
effort out today. We went out 
and got after it on defense, and 
if there was one outstanding 
part of our play as a unit, it 


was the defensive effort, 

"We looked a whole lot 
better than we did against the 
Australians," Hildebrand 
continued, and it encourages 
me to see the improvement. I 
hope we continue to improve 
before we play Centenary, 
though," said the veteran 
head coach. 

The Demons face Centenary 
in the season opener on Nov. 
25 in Shreveport, and play 
their first home contest in the 
refurbished Prather Coliseum 
Nov. 30 against Northeast and 
Ail-American Calvin Natt.

Cajuns Kick Demons 19-17 
Last-Minute Field Goal

the visiting Ragin' Cajuns Saturday night in their next-to-last contest of 
the 1978 season. (NSU photo by Don Sepulvado) 

Southwestern Louisiana's John Roveto booted his 
fourth field goal of the game with three seconds left 
on the clock to give USL a 19-17 victory over 
Northwestern State University Saturday night in 
Turpin Stadium. 

Roveto 's field goal, a 24 yarder, came after a last- 
minute USL drive set up by a 31 yard punt return by 
Cajun Nat Durant. The drive, covering 47 yards in 
seven plays, was kept alive by two David Guidry to 
David Gray passes for first downs. 

"We were thinking field goal all the way from the 
time we got the ball the last time," confessed Cajun 
head coach Augie Tammeriello after the contest." 
"There was really no time to score a touchdown, but 
from one minute until the end we were in John 
Roveto's range." 

Tammeriello 's logic was prompted when the 
soccer-style kicker boomed through a 52 yard three- 
pointer late in the third stanza to give USL a 16-10 
lead. Roveto was the nation's leader in field goal 
percentage last season. 

Along with the game-winning 24 yarder and the 52 
yarder, Roveto had kicks of 49 and 37 yards. He also 
had a 40 yard attempt blocked by Demon Rodney 
Procell. That came with 8:23 left, and with, NSU 
clinging to a narrow 17-16 edge, it looked to be the 
game's biggest play, but the last-minute Cajun 
surge changed that. 

The Demons survived an exchange of fumbles 
after the blocked field goal, and on fourth down 
from the North wesern 40 with just over two minutes 
left freshman Randy Liles lofted a 46 yard punt to 
Durant at the USL 14. The fleet-footed Cajun juked 
his way upfield to the USL 45, giving Southwestern 
excellent field position with 1:53 remaining. 

Cajun signalcaller Guidry, who came off the 

bench to spark USL this time as he had done in the 
only two previous Southwestern wins this season, 
found wider receiver David Gray on second down 
for a 15 yard pickup and a first down at the NSU 36. 

One play later it was Guidry hitting Gray again 
for a first down, this time at the 17. Two carries by 
fullback Brian Daigle moved the ball into the 
middle of the field at the Demon eight, and with only 
six seconds left Roveto lined up to try the field goal 

The Demons called time out, both to try to rattle 
Roveto and to set up an effort to block the kick. But 
it was to no avail, as Roveto split the uprights and 
gave USL the victory. 

USL had scored first on Roveto's 49 yard kick at 
13:44 of the first quarter. The field goal was set up 
when Rod Smith raced 52 yards with the opening 
kickoff down to the NSU 3fi. Demon Jack Brittain 
made a touchdown-saving tackle on Smith. 

The Demons roared back to take the lead when, 
on the fourth play after the ensuing kickoff, tailback 
Joe Delaney took a pitch from quarterback Kenny 
Philibert and surprised everyone by throwing a 
pass to a wide-open Mike Almond that covered 63 
yards and gave NSU six points. Dennis Pendergraft 
added the conversion to make it 7-3. 

Later in the first period Delaney set up a 
Pendergraft field goal with a 34 yard punt return 
down to the Cajun 23. NSU moved to the 12 before 
USL forced Pendergraft's try of 29 yards, which 
was good and gave the Demons a 10-3 lead. 

Southwestern tied it up with 7:33 left in the half on 
an 18 yard screen pass from Guidry to Daigle, and 
went ahead on Roveto's 37 yarder that was set ui 
when Delaney fumbled on a punt return. 

Roveto launched his 52 yard effort with 3:50 
remaining in the third stanza to move the count to 
16-10. The Cajun "drive" consisted of two penalties 

for 28 yards against NSU, which set up the kick. 

The Demons entered the fourth quarter behind by 
six, but 45 seconds later they were ahead by one. 
Philibert hit James Bennett for 18 yards to the USL 
49 on the quarter's first play, and then found Britain 
open across the middle on the next play. 

The senior receiver hauled in the pass at the 3$ 
and reversed his field, dashing down to the Cajuns 
nine for a 40 yard gain. Delaney sprinted in on thej 
next play and Pendergraft's PAT jumped the 
Demons into a 17-16 lead. 

USL then mounted a 13 play, 57 yard drive that set 
up zRo veto's 40 yard field goal attempt that waj 
blocked by Procell. 

"It was a tough one to lose," Demon head coach 
A.L. Williams reflected after the game. "The guyi 
played their hearts out and it's a shame that it 
ended like it did. But we left the ball on the groued. 
too much," said Williams, "and we couldn't hate 
given them many more opportunities." 

The Demon defense again turned in a gf 
performance, limitinng USL to 252 total yard 
compared to NSU's 428. David Wright, Jan* 
Lilley, Art Lancaster, Willie Washington, and Stacy 
Holder were standouts for NSU. 

USL's Tammeriello said, "Our defense played 
super. Delaney was really great for them, butie 
tried to hit him hard to stop him. I said earlier tlis 
week that I think he is the best back in the sttje 
including Charles Alexander (of LSU). We ditk'f 
know he fumbled so much, though." 

"Joe's had that problem all year," said Williao 
about Delaney's three fumbles," and we've ber 
working on it. He's still learning since he's ofcv. 
been a running back for about a year, so that shafc- 
disappear in time.

Miller's to Sponsor Campus 
One-on-One Tournament 

Demons Host SLU Lions in Finale 

Northwestern students who usually si tin the 
stands and dream of being Kareem jabdul 
Jabbar or Pete Maravich will get a chance to 
bring their fantasies to life when the Miller 
Brewing Company and the Natchitoches 
Beverage Company brings their One-on-One 
Basketball tournament to Northwestern this 

Open to any graduate or undergraduate 
student who has not played collegiate 
basketball, the One-on-One contests will be 
staged during half-time of Demon home 
basketball games. 

Participants will engage in a four minute 
basketball game, with the player scoring ten 
points first and leading by at least two points 
declared the winner. A championship tour- 
nament will be held at the end of the season. 

The winner will receive a $200 scholarship 
award and a trophy. In the event that he or 
she is not eligible to accept the award because 
of financial assistance restrictions, the 
money will be donated to the Northwestern 
athletic department. 

Second, third, and fourth place winners will 
recieve trophies. All participants will recieve 
a pair of Miller athletic socks and a one-on- 
one T-shirt. 

Students interested in playing in the One- 
on-One competition should contact Nor- 
thwestern' s Director of Intramurals, Ginger 
Parrish, in her office in the Old Men's Gym on 
campus before the end of November. 

The National One-on-One program was 
tested during the 1977-78 season and the 
results were "so positive that we've expanded 
the program to accomodate the numerous 
requests and inquiries concerning in- 
volvement, a spokesman for the Miller 

Company said. 

Rules for the competition include the four- 
minute time limit, the "win- by-two" rule, and 
the provision for one official to call the con- 
test. For the first two fouls, one free throw per 
four will be awarded. All other fouls will 
result in a two-shot situation. A player may be 
disqualified, if in the opinion of the game 
official, he or she commits a flagrant foul. 




Northwestern State University wil be at- 
tempting to regain that homefield magic 
Saturday when the Demons play host to 
powerful Southeastern La. Univeristy in what 
has come o be the traditional season-ending 
game for both schools. 

The Demons, corning off a narrow last- 
second 10-17 lost to Southwestern La. last 
weekend, stand at 3-1 at home on the 
Astroturf of Harry "Rags" Turpin Stadium 
this season, with the only home loss coming 
last weekend. In addition, the Demons hold an 
11-3 record since the stadium was refurbished 
three years ago. 

However, Northwestern will have to be on 
top of its game in order to snap a three-game 
losing streak at the hands of the Lions, who 
sport an impressive 7-2-1 record and also 
sport some pretty presitgious defensive 

Southeastern currently ranks first among 
all Division H schools in the country in 
scoring defense, allowing only an average of 
6.5 points per game to its opponents. The 
Lions are also second in the nation in total 
defense and fourth in rushing defense. 

"They probabty have the best defensive 
squad we've seen all year," said NSU head 

coach A.L. Williams whose squad currently 
sports a 4-6 record. "They are strong against 
the run and the pass, and they get especially 
tough in scoring territory." 

The Demons lost last year's contest 38-21 in 
Hammond, and the ast time that NSU 
defeated the Lions was in 1974 when the 
Demons took a runaway 40-3 victory for their 
only win of the season and in the last game 
under the leadership of retired coach George 

This will be the 40th meeting between these 
two schools in a series that began in 1935 and 
has been contested every season since 1937 
except for wartime. SLU currently holds a 
narrow 20-19 lead in the overal srejes thanks 
to the recent three-game wu\'skien, which 
Mowed a five-year domination by the 

The Lions downed Nicholls State 10-fl last 
weekend in New Orleans and in the process 
put themselves in position for a possible tie 
for the Gulf South Conference Championship. 
If North Alabama defeats Jacksonville, 
Saturday, the Lions would get a share of the 
title, but if Jacksonville wins it would give the 
title to the Alabama squad outright. 

The Lions of coach Billy Brewer are led by 

sophomore quarterback Johnny Wells, who 
has hit on 59 of 115 passes for 811 yards, 
and five touchdowns this season to a bevy 
of capable receivers. 

Wide receiver Andre Lennix, also a 
sophomroe, and junior Jeff Coates each have 
12 receptions on the season and one touch- 
down, while sophomore tight end Leslie 
Jackson has 10 grabs on the year. 

The top rushers for SLU include freshmart 
Mack Boatner, who has 427 yards and one TD] 
on the year. Junior Tommy Calandro, a 
former NSU signee who later inked with 
Tulane before transferring to southeastern, 
has 392 yards and three scores, and 
sophomore Robert Hicks has 337 yards on the 

The lions' best offensive weapon, though 
lies in the strong legs of punter Jam 
Magruder and placekicker Frank Londono 
Magruder currently leads the GSC in puntin 
with a 40.7 average, with backup punter Scof 
Allen ranking second in the league with a 40. 

Londono, a native of Colombia, has hit oi | 
all of 21 PAT attempts this year and is nine-of 
18 on field goals with a long of 48 yards an<

Wednesday-last chance 
to vote this semester 

Yearbook fee increase, Mr,, Miss NSU on ballot 

The final campus-wide election for 
the fall semester will be held tomorrow 
with students returning to the polls to 
decide the fate of the Potpourri fee 
increase bill, and to select Mr. and Miss 
NSU for 1978-79. 

The yearbook has not had a fee in- 
crease since 1973. Editor Mike Gallien 
and his staff have requested a $2.50 
increase to combat the. sky-rocketing 
publication costs that they face. 

Roscoe Lewis, John McKellar, Mary 
Lyn Bartek, and Edith Harris are in the 
run-off for Mr. and Miss NSU. They 
were selected from a slate of twelve 
candidates in the November 15 election. 



Miss NSU election Results questioned 

A drafting technology major from 
Kenner, La., Roscoe Lewis is a member 
of Omega Psi Phi and a former 
member of the NSU football team. 

John McKellar, an accounting major 
from Bossier City is president of the 
Student Government Association and a 
member of Kappa Sigma Fraternity. 

An upper elementary education 
major from Bossier City, Mary Lyn 
Bartek is president of Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority and a member of the 
Kappa Sigma Dream Court. 
Edith Harris, a broadcast jour- 
nalistm major from Baton Rouge is a 
member of the Society of Professional 
Journalists, Sigma Delta Chi, and a 
member of the Argus staff. 
The following bill passed four weeks 
ago by the Student Government 
Association will be voted on tomorrow, 
November 29: 

WHEREAS, the Potpourri staff 
members are constantly being faced 
with rising publication costs, and 

WHEREAS, the student publication 
known as the Potpourri represents the 
spirit and emotions of the Northwestern 
State University student body. 

THEREFORE be it resolved to in- 
crease student fees by $2.50 pertaining 
to the Potpourri fund in order to meet 
the needs of a first rate student 

(The above is the third printing of this 
bill in accordance to the Student 
Government Association Constitution, 
wtich stipulates that any bill voted upon 
by the students must be printed in the 
CURRENT SAUCE for three con- 
secutive issues.) 

In a letter sent to NSU Commissioner 
of Elections Terry McCarty on 
November 15, Edith Harris, candidate 
for Miss NSU, requested, "A thorough 
recount of the votes cast on November 
15, 1978, by the identical tabulators, 
before the Thanksgiving break, and 
that the results of the recount be given 
to me (Harris) and a copy to Leslie 
Thompson, both of which shall be 
signed by Terry McCarty, Com- 
missioner of Elections." 

Harris based her request in question 
of the manner of percentages needed to 
obtain a majority of votes cast in the 

According to McCarty, Harris' 
demand was met after a called meeting 
of the NSU Election Board. Letters 
were to be sent to Harris and Leslie 
Thompson, campus president of the 
NAACP, said McCarty. 

McCarty said, "A retabulation of the 
votes has been taken and the results are 
to be given to Leslie Thompson and 
Edith Harris." 

McCarty explained that in order for a 
candidate to be declared winner in an 
election, he must gain a simple 
majority as definted by the NSU 
Election Code in Article 7, Section A as 
"50 percent of votes plus one." 

No female candidate received at least 
394 votes, which McCarty said was 
a simple majority in the Miss 
NSU election. 

Noting Article 7, Section D of the NSU 
Election Code, McCarty said that only 

the top two vote-getters are in a run-off 
in single post elections. Thus, Mary Lyn 

Bartek and Edith Harris, the top two 
female vote-getters, are the nominees 

in the November 29 run-off election for 
Miss NSU.

Another increase? 
This one's needed 

Potpourri wants to try again. 

And they are going to. All the 
channels have been passed 
through and students are once 
again given the final say as to 
whether or not Potpourri funds 
should be raised. Last year the 
bill failed. Hopefully, history 
won't repeat itself. 

As Editor of CURRENT 
SAUCE, I am faced daily with 
rising publication costs, not to 
mention photography costs, 
staff salaries, supplies, etc. The 
Student Government 
Association stipulates 
POTPOURRI fees and salaries 
in accordance to registration 
fees. With all cost going up, and 
Northwestern enrollment going 
down, it is understandable that 
POTPOURRI finds itself in this 
financial bind. 

Many people would be 
content to sit back, tell 
POTIOURRI to make do with 
what they have, and forget 
about it. I suggest that those 
are usually some of the same 
people who become highly 
skilled critics when the 

■ -v.s-.-v t # # 

publication is released. 

The POTPOURRI staff, 
working with a highly limited 
budget, will be producing a 
quality publication this spring, 
but there are many things that 
they will not be able to do 
because of financial costs, 
including extra color and 

special effects. Not only are the 
students themselves affected, 
but the university is also 
directly influenced by this, in 
regard to comparison of other 
university publications. 

Our yearbooks and 
newspapers represent us in the 
offices of the Board of Regents 
and Board of Trustees in Baton 

Our yearbooks and 
newspapers are sent to other 
colleges and universities 
throughout the state, and bear 
direct reflection upon us as 
students at Norhtwestern. 

Our publications are shown to 
high school students in 
recruitment programs. 

The list goes on Yearbooks 
and newspapers do not stop wit- 
h the students at NSU. They 
only begin there. And, even if 
we are the only reason for 
paying an extra $2.50, wouldn 
t we be worth it? 

Do you remember exactly 
how much our high school 
yearbook cost? Probably not, 
but chances are you would pay 
twice as much to replace it if 
you had to, because the 
memory is worth it. It will be 
the same is four years about 
this yearbook. 

Vote yes tomorrow. It's a 
smart thing to do for yourself 
and for Northwestern. 

Readers comment 
on past articles 

Dear Editor: 

There seems to have been a 
slight error in the article about 
nard Rose in the November 14 
edition of Current Sauce. Brian 
Reason has no apparent ability 
to critique anyone as 
distinguished as Leonard Rose. 
Leonard Rose is the second best 
cellest in the world, possible the 
first, and only a fool could call 
his performance boring. If this 
is how people react to a world 
famous guest artist visiting 
there, tnen it becomes 
understandable why not many 
do come to NSU. Just because 
Mr. Reason is illiterate in good 
music literature doesn't give 
him the right to write the 
ridiculous article he did. Maybe 
next time you should get 
someone with more tact and 
common sense to go to the 
concerts, Case closed, 

Cheryl Corkran 

Dear Cheryl: 

I can fully understand your 
attitude concerning the writeup 
of the Rose concer, but there 
are a few things I would like to 
explain to you and all those who 
were offended by this article. 

The Journalism 252 class is 
required to attend a certain 

of concerts and turn in their 
critique of them. They are 

graded on these articles. We 
usually print the one that is the 
best. In this case, this is the 
only article that was turned in, 
and thus we printed this story. 

The students are journalism 
majors, not music appreciation 
majors. If he did not 
necessarily appreciate the 
concert, or if he did in fact find 
it boring, then that is the way, 
as a reporter, that he should 
report it. True, I would like to 
see reports done on such 
activities that are written by 
people who are familiar with 
such art, and who in fact, can be 
knowledgeable in critique. 
Unfortunately, there are very 
few of my reporters who have 
that ability, although I do not 
mean that in any derrogatory 
sense. I do not, and I'm sure 
Mr. Reason does not appreciate 
you calling him illiterate about 
music anymore than you would 
appreciate being called 
illiterate concerning 
journalism. I do thank you for 
your concern, and would 
welcome cooperation from you 
and members of this 
department concerning articles 
of critique in the future.-

nation is still in shock over 
the bizarre suicide-killings 
in Guyana, South America. 
More than 400 disciples of 
the Peoples Temple joined 
their fanatical leader, Jim 
Jones, in an orgy of poison- 
ing and shooting. Hun- 
dreds more, it is believed, 
fled into the jungle to 

The brutal slaying of 
California Rep. Leo Ryan 
and four others touched off 
the death orgy. It has also 
stirred a bitter contro- 
versy in the backrooms of 

The congressman's staff 
told us that the State De- 
partment failed to give 
Ryan adequate warning of 
the danger. Spokesmen for 
the department, in turn, 
insist they perceived "no 
physical danger" to the 
congressman and his dele- 

Yet dissident members 
of the cult had complained 
to the FBI about threats of 
violence. The dissidents 
had told about gun-toting 
guards and harsh physical 
beatings. As early as last 
July, one dissident gave 
her attorney an affidavit, 
describing rehearsals for 
mass suicide at the Gu- 
yana colony. 

The FBI, however, ac- 
cepted the advice of the 
U.S. attorney in San Fran- 
cisco, who claimed the FBI 
had no jurisdiction over 
the allegations because 
"no federal laws had been 

Now, the FBI is belat- 
edly investigating allega- 
tions that the cult had a 
plan to kidnap or assassi- 

nate prominent people in 
the event of Jones' arrest. 

The State Department 
also received complaints 
that cult members were 
held at the colony against 
their will and that they had 
been subjected to abuse. 
Consular officers visited 
the colony but could not 
verify the charges. 

The murdered congress- 
man also received a pro- 
phetic letter from Jones' 
attorney, Mark Lane. 
"You may judge, there- 
fore," wrote Lane on Nov. 
6, "the important conse- 
quences which may flow 
from further persecution 
of (the cult) and which 
may very well result in the 
creation of a most embar- 
rassing situation for the 
U.S. government." 

Rep. Ryan personally 
underlined those lines 
from Lane's letter. But the 
congressman responded 
that the implied threat 
"did not impress (him) at 
all." The State Depart- 
ment gave Ryan the green 
light, and he flew to Gu- 
yana to his death. 

The leader of the Peoples 
Temple, Jim Jones, was a 
former San Francisco 
housing official. His 
church started out helping 
people in trouble. His disci- 
ples used to write to us 
frequently. "Brother 
Jones," they would write, 
"urged us to pray for you 
and your work." Once, the 
church offered to send us 
$1,000 to start a scholar- 
ship fund. 

We turned down the 
money and suggested that 
Jones donate it to charity.

One of the worst sites, 
ironically, is Niagara 
Falls, the honeymoon re- 
sort in upper New York. 
But the surfacing chemi- 
cals are making it a dan-

Sources who have been 
investigating the chemical 
menace at Niagara Falls 
say that dioxin has been 
found at one dumping loca-

poisonous chemicals on 

Already, people are 
deserting their homes. An 
environmental official 
calls the polluted sites 
"ticking time bombs." He 
claims there are many of 
them across the country. 

Yet the Environmental 
Protection Agency seems 
to be shutting its eyes to 
the chemical catastrophe. 
Congress has passed legis- 
lation to deal with such 
hazards, but our sources at

NEW EVIDENCE— The Dallas Morning News reported 
Sunday that a film taken by an amateur photographer just 
before the assassination of President John F. Kennedy may 
show two people in the window of the Texas Book Depository. 
Robert Groden, a House Assassinations Committee film 
technician, has stated that the film shows two men in the 
"sniper's nest" on the sixth floor of the building. This new 
evidence could disprove the Warren Commission's decision 
that Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone in the assassination. 

NEW YORK FIRE— Ten persons were killed Sunday as an 
early morning fire raced through a Holiday Inn in Rochester, 
New York. Authorities reported the fire broke out in a 
storage room on the ground floor and quickly spread through 
the building. The motel was filled with Thanksgiving 
weekend travelers. 

SEARCH ENDS— The last of the 912 bodies found last week 
in the Peoples Temple in Jonestown, Guyana was placed on a 
U.S. Army helicopter Saturday bound for Dover Air Force 
Base, Delaware. U.S. Army burial teams ended the grim 
week-long search for bodies of the cult members who died in 
the bizarre murder-suicide rites. Rep. Leo Ryan, D-Calf., 
and three newsmen were killed last weekend in an ambush at 
the Port Kaituma airstrip. Officials say that 39 of the cult 
members survived the mass suicide. Rev. Jim Jones, the 
leader of the Peoples Temple, reportedly died of a self- 
inflicted bullet wound. 

SNOW-COVERED STATES-Wyoming, Colorado, and 
Nebraska were blanketed with more than a half-foot of snow 
as an early winter storm moved toward the east Sunday. The 
snow and accompanying heavy winds made traveling 
difficult for those returning home from the Thanksgiving

WEEKEND FOOTBALL-The LSU Tigers defeated the 
Tulane Green Wave 40-21 in Tiger Stadium Saturday night, 
but the New Orleans Saints lost to the Atlanta Falcons 20-17 
Sunday in Atlanta. 

NEW ORLEANS MARCH— A predicted confrontation 
between robed Ku Klux Klansmen and black activists did not 
materialize Sunday as the two groups marched in downtown 
New Orleans. Police Superintendent James Parsons 
persuaded the KKK to march an hour earlier than scheduled 
to avoid a showdown. The black activists had stated they 
would confront the Klansmen who marched through the 
French Quarter to a white supermacy monument at the foot 
of Canal Street. Many blacks who had attended Saturday's 
Grambling-Southern football game in the Superdome were 
still in the city during the KKK march. 

Louisiana Association of Educators wants $1,270 added to the 
minimum pay for beginning teachers— which would bring 
starting pay to $10,000 per year. The LAE has asked the state 
to change the method of setting salaries and pay raises so 
that both would be figured as a percentage of the base pay. 
Under the present system, the state provides a beginning 
teacher with a bachelors's degree $8,730 per year and $8,941 
per year if the beginning teacher has a master's degree. 

LAE PRESIDENT SPEAKS— The newly elected president of 
the Louisiana Association of Educators, Gerry Boudreaux 
has vowed to fight Education Superintendent Kelly Nix's 
proposal to end teacher tenure. Boudreaux said that he does 
1 things we need to measure can be measured on a test 
score." The new LAE president told the group that his 
number one goal will be "getting everyone together for the 
good of the children, the teachers, and the state of La.

Wonder Woman? - Nope, Barbie Jenkins 

By Helen Hubley 

Barbie Jenkins, Miss Lady of the Bracelet, may 
possibly be NSU's answer to Wonder Woman. 
Barbie, eighteen-year-old freshman from 
Lafayette, happen to be the World Champion in 
Double Mini-Trampoline competition for 1978. She 
won this title last summer in Waikiki Beach, 

In addition to being a world champion 
trampolinist, Barbie excels in dance, twirling, 
music and all academic areas. When asked about 
her feelings upon winning her beauty title, this 
petite blonde replied, "I was overwhelmed! I'd 
never thought about winning because this was my 
first beauty pageant. I couldn't believe it that 
night, and I still can't believe it." 

This determined beauty also holds a music 
scholarship here at NSU. She began playing the 
piano at age five and took up the clarinet and the 
-flute at age ten. According to Barbie, "I don't 
know what it's like to just sit around. I've always 
been so busy. Doing everything that I can has 
always been a part of my life." 

At age ten Barbie began her trampoline 
exercises, and at age twelve she started her 
gymnastics work. Barbie has toured the United 
States with the University of Southwestern 
Louisiana trampoline team, under the direction of 
Coach Jeff Hennessey, since she was thirteen- 

"I wanted to go to the Olympics when I got 
older, but trampoline events are not included in 
the Olympics, so I've changed my ambition 
toward coaching a team for the Tlympics," said 
Barbie. A physical education major here at NSU, 
Barbie intends to open er own school of 
gymnastics one day. 

Barbie's mother and father have encouraged 
her in her endeavors throughout the years. Her 

mother, Marjorie Jenkins, is a band director for 
two elementary schools in Lafayette, and her 
father, Professor Raymond Jenkins, is head of the 
Mechanical Engineering Department at USL. 

A member of the NSU Twirling Line, Barbie 
began twirling when she was in tenth grade at 
Lafayette High School. She served as Head 
Majorette for Lafayette High for two years. In 
addition to her band activities in high school, she 
was elected to her homecoming court for two 
years and was voted most talented by her senior 

In spite of all her extracurricular activitivs, 
Barbie has been able to maintain a high academic 
standing. Selected for membership to her high 
school's honor society, she was graduated in the 
top 2 percent of class with a 3.8 grade point 

What caused this malti-talented coed to come to 
Northwestern? "Well, the P.E. D EPARTMENT 
AND THE Music Department here are really 
good, and I love the beautiful campus," said 
Barbie. Here at NSU, Barbie is a pledge of Delta' 
Zeta Social Sorority and serves as a Batgirl for 
the NSU Baseball Team, of which her boyfriend 
Bill Land is a member. She also works in the Fine 
Arts Department. 

Barbie made up her ow routine for the Lady of 
the Bracelet Pageant. She performed her 
combination dance-gymnastics routine to "Alone 
in the Rain," the theme from the movie ROCKY. 
Looking forward to the Miss Louisiana Pageant t 
be held in Monroe during the summer of 1979, 
Barbie plans to work up her own combination 
floor exercise-trampoline routine for her talent 

Exercising, jogging, dieting, and reading up on 
current events are items on Barbie's agenda for 
the months preceding the Miss Louisiana 
Pageant. With the winning attributes of Barbie's 
personality, she just may be the next Miss 
America ! 

But for right now, Barbie is resting from the 
hectic days of the Lady of the Bracelet Pageant. 
"I had a great time in the pageant, but it was a lot 
of hard work. Right now I'm enjoying eating a few 
fattening things!" 

Midnight breakfasts still possible 

David Goldstein 

A question that repeatedly has been asked is whether or 
not Northwestern students will be able to continue o have 
Midnight Breakfast. The actions taken by students on that 
unforgettable Monday night were, "a combination of 
excitement and anticipation" according to Jack McCormick 
Food Service Director. 

Mr. McCormick also thinks that the reasons for the out- 
break could have been caused because the students have alot 
of spirit and like to have fun. "Of course I wish the throwing 
of napkins, food, cups, etc, had never taken place, but with all 
the activities thatwere going on, the excitement of State Fair 

Week had reached a peak where something was bound to 

Even with the extra money that had to be spent for the 
extra help and the time it took to finally finish cleaning up, 
McCormick said that he does not hold any grudges. "In fact, 
he stated, "midnight breakfast will always be in the schedule 
for NSU activities as long as I am here." When asked what 
changes would be made for the next one, he replied, "there 
might be a security guard at the front door to discourage 
those from being wild." 

Mr. McCormick and his staff are planning to have a 
' Midnight breakfast" this semester before the exams get

'Magic' amazes audiences 

There is magic indeed in the 
creative elements which fuse 
together to bring "MAGIC" to 
the screen as one of the most 
fascinatingly suspenseful love 
stories ever filmed. 

Producers Joseph E. Levine 
and Richard P. Levine bring 
to "MAGIC" the ex- 
traordinary production values 
for which they are famed, and 
Richard Attenborough's 
direction finds just the right 
note of brooding terror for the 
compelling screenplay 
William Goldman has woven 
so masterfully from his novel. 

The film catches the 
audiencp in its grip and never 
let" go from those first 
moments when, under the 
titles, the camera begins its 
restless prowling of a room 
jam-crammed with magic 
apparatus... collapsible bird 
cages, top hats, flags, silks, 

linking rings. It is a bizarre 
array, and it sets the tone for 
the pulse-stopping action 
which follows: the intriguingls 
detailed study of a man who 
takes refuge within the 
illusionary world magic can 
create. Corky finds for himself 
a voice outside his own, the 
voice of Fats, a ventriloquist's 
dummy — brash, aggressive, 
acid-tongued, frequently 
descending into fowl-mouthed 
abusiveness — KWHO, 
Corky's own hidden fears, 
yearnings, hostilities and 

By combining ventriloquism 
with his magic, Corky 
catapults himself into the 
limelight as one of the most 
sought after entertainers in 
the business. His agent, 

worldly-wise and cynical old 
Ben Green, tells him he is just 
one step away from the big 
time. But this represents a. 
final commitment which - 
terrifies Corky, and he is 
plunged suddenly into an 
abyss of self-created terror.. .a 
nightmare e wreaks upon the 
placed countryside he knew 
many years earlier when he 
was growing up. 

A brilliant combination of 
talents at the top of their form, 
the film's stars— Anthony 
Hopkins, Ann-Margret, 
Burgess Meredith and Ed 
Lauter — work together in a 
commanding display of en- 
semble performance that adds 
immeasurably to the 
cumulative terror and 
suspense as this most unusual 
love story unfolds.

Gents spank Demons in season opener 

Centenary College outscored Northwestern State 
University by 16-4 over a five-minute stretch in the 
second half to break open a close game and give the 
Gents a 93-81 victory over the Demons here 
Saturday night. 

The Gents, who like the Demons were opening 
their 1978-79 season, led by only one point at 56-55 
with 14 minutes to go in the contest but used six 
baskets by forward George Lett during that 16-point 
run, which gave the Gents their largest lead of the 
game at that time. 

The loss by NSU overshadowed a spectacular 28- 
point, 14- rebound performance by Demon 
sophomore Jim Hoops, who hit 11 of 19 shots from 
the floor during the contest. Hoops efforts were 
game highs. 

Hoops was one of three Demons in double figures, 
as post- man Guy Charles gunned in 18 points and 
guard Jerry Lewis added 13. Centenary had five in 
double digits, paced by Lett's 23 and John 
Der en becker with 21.

3 - 13 



The win was the Gentlemens' 13th in the last 14 
meeting of a 73-year-old series between the two 
schools, and the eighth consecutive win in the series 
in the Gold Dome for the Gents, seven minutes into 
the contest when Derenbecker converted on a three- 
point play to make it 17-9 with 13:05 to go in the first 
half. It was 31-19 when Steve Kelly hit two free 
throws for the Gents 7:31 left, but from that point 
the Demons outscored their hosts 18-6 over the next 
four minuses to tie things up at 37-all. _. 

It stayed tied at 37 until the final minute of play in 
the half, when Centenary's Billy Reiser keyed a 
surge that gave the Gentlemen a 44-41 halftime 
lead. The Demons kept it close early in the second 
half, even closing to within one at 54-53, before the 
Gents roaired away on the strength of Lett's 
shooting arid the lightning-quick Gent defense . 

Centenary moved to a commanding 83-69 lead 
with the Lett-led charge, and Demon coach Tynes 
Hildebrand could do little more that sit back and 
watch as a strong Gent bench protected the bulge 
against the weary Demons. 

Northwestern, of course, suffered a big loss last 
week before Piper the season started when junior 
postman Fred Piper was injured in an auto accident 
that claimed the life of Demon footballer Wyamond 
Waters. Then, to complicate matters further, senior 
Robert Lively hurt his leg in practice and could not 
play in Saturday's game. 

The loss of the two big men obviously hurt the 
inside game of Hildebrand's charges. "Our inside 
defense broke down," Hildebrand said later, " and 
it was tough to stop them. But we're going to be a 
good inside team.'s gonna take time though," he 

Circle your wagons and hold onto your hats, 
the Northeast Indians are on their way. 

Thursday night the continuation of a 
seemingly age old rivalry between Northeast 
and the Demons of Northwestern will kick off 
once more in the confines of Prather 

Both teams will be coming off tough games 
Monday night with the Demons traveling to 
face McNeese and the Indians hosting 
Nicholls St. But tough or not, the intense 
rivalry between these two clubs should be at 
the boiling point Thursday by 7:30 p.m. 

Last year's Indian team was 20-7 for NLU's 
17th consecutive winning season and eight 
lettermen, including four starters, return 
from that team. 

The lettermen will be led into action by 
none other than All-America senior forward 
Calvin Natt (6-foot-5). 

Natt was the nation's No. 4 rebounder last 
year with an average of 13.2 rebounds a game 
and also ranked among the scor leaders with 
a 21.3 average. 

Backing him up will be seniors Ronnie 
Dowline ( 5-foot-9) Jamie Mayo (5-10), David 

Hall i6-foot-6). In addition, juniors Kenny 
Natt (6-ffot-3), John Pickett (6- foot -4), 
Ronald Frazier (6-foot-5) and Eugene 
Robinson (6-foot-8). 

Natt, as everyone probably knows, is 
coming off knee surgery, but from all reports, 
he is back to his old form. 

Unless he reinjures his leg Monday night 
against Nicholls he should be ready for action 
Thursday . 

Northwestern lost both of their matchups 
with the Indians last year, but it was close 
defeats in each game. 

The Demons will be without the services of 
star center Fred Piper, who was lost for the 
season because of a car wreck. 

But Northwestern, who dropped a 93-81 
decision to Centenary last Saturday night; 
will overcome this problem by moving junior 
Guy Charles, a 6-foot-6 180 pounder to the 

Junior Andre Bailey (6-foot-5 forward) and 
Jim Hoops, ( 6-foot-5 sophomore forward-) 
round out the front court for the Jerry 
LewisDemons while and Mike Brey will 
handle the guard positions.

Lady Demons split pair over 
weekend in New Orleans 

Demons of Northwestern State 
University opened their season over 
the weekend here with a convincing 
win and a narrow loss. 

Sophomore Joan Dar bonne poured 
>n 29 points to lead the Lady Demons 
to a lopsided win over the University 
of New Orleans Saturday afternoon. 
Darbonne, a 5-foot-7 guard, had 17 of 
her career high total in the first half 
when the Lady Demons rolled to a 
commanding 54-23 lead at halftime. 

Freshman Marilyn Gates of 
Benton added 12 points and 12 
rebounds for NSU, while Mary 
Humphrey chipped in with nine 
rnarkers and Linda Jones, Theresa 
kang, Debbie Lambright and Lisa 
Thompson had eight each. 

Thonda Bentley led the way for the 
Lady Privateers, now 0-3 on the 
season with 16 points, while Cathy 
Va.nhuse had 15 and Jan Gornhauser 
had 10. 

The Lady Demon win over UNO 
evened their record at 1-1 after a 
Friday loss to the Tulane University 
women. A second half rally fell short 
as Tulane took a 615-59 victory over 
NSU behind the 21 point effort of 
Tammy Johnson. 

The Lady Demons, Down 32-22 at 
halftime, made it ciose in the second 
half but were hurt by personal fouls. 
Marilyn Gates led a balanced attack 
for NSU with 15 points, while Jones 
had 12, Long 10, and Diana Cary and 
Joan Darbonne 8 e ach. 

The Lady Demons traveled to 
Lake Charles Monday night to take 
on McNeese State for their third 
straight road game.

Lady Demons open home 
season Thursday 

The Lady Demons of Northwestern State University play 
their first home game of the season Thursday evening at 5:15 
against the Lady Indians of Northeast Louisiana University. 
The game is a preliminary to the men's game against NLU at 


Sophomore Joan Darbonne leads the Lady Demons in 
scoring with an 18.5 average after a sparkling 29 point 
performance against the University of New Orleans: 
Marilyn Gates is next with a 13.5 norm and leads the squad in 
rebounding with 13.5 boards per outing. Linda Jones sports 
an even 10.0 average while Theresa Long has a 9.0 norm and 
leads the team in steals with 7. Diana Cary rounds out the 
starting line-up with a 6.0 avg. and is the team's second 
leading rebounder at 7.0. 

Freshman Mary Humphrey of Kilbourne has performed 
nicely off the bench with 6.5 points and 6.0 rebounds per 
game. Others likely to see action are Debbie Lambright and 
Lisa Thompson. 

Northeast returns it's top two scorers and rebounders of 
last season, and, with the addition of five new recruits, could 
make first year Coach Linda Harper's debut season a 

success. The Lady Indians return Marlena Mossbarger and 
Linda Kinard, both sophomores, along with other starters 
Ginger Martin and Linda Andrews from last year. 

Mossbarger, a 6-4 center, averaged 23.2 points and 11.1 
rebounds while Kinard had norms of 14.0 and 9.0 Andrews 
came on late in the season to average 12.1 points and 8.9 

The key to the Lady Indian attack may be in the guard 
position where Martin is the only returning letterman. 
Martin may miss the Thursday night contest because of a 
knee injury, but capable help should come from junior 
college transfers Sue Sullivan and Etta Walker. 

The game also marks the home coaching debut of former 
NSU grea Pat Nolen. Nolen was one of the all-time leading 
scorers in Lady Demon history. 

The Lady Demons come into the game without its two top 
scorers of a year ago that defeated the Lady Indians 91-70 
here in Prather Coliseum. This game was marked by an 
eighty eight point second half by the two teams and indicates 
that a high scoring contest may be in store. 

Williams Disappointed with 5-6 season 

The 1978 football season is 
history for Northwestern State 
University's Demon football 
team, and the campaign left 
bittersweet memories for NSU 
head coach A.L. Williams. 

"I'm disappointed that our 
record wasn't any better than 
it was," Williams said after 
his team had finished with a 5- 
6 worksheet over the cam- 
paign, "because I felt going 
into the season that we had the 
potential to be a big winner 
this year." 

The Demon squad started 
out just as Williams expected, 
winning their first three 
games over Lamar, Stephen 
F. Austin and McNeese State. 
However, the tide turned as 
abruptly as possible as NSU 
fell in a 46-0 defeat at the 
hands of Northeast Louisiana 
that started a four-game 
losing streak, all on the road. 

"Things didn't go well at all 
for us during those four 
games," said Williams, who 
completed his fourth year as 
head coach of the Demons. 
"We could not seem to shake 
ourselves loose during that 
time, and even though we 
were playing good football 
teams we should have played 
much better than we did." 

The Demons lost to NLU 
Arkansas State, Louisville and 
old rival La. Tech during that 
streak before returning home 
for a 28-18 victory over 
Nicholls State. After that, the 
Demons dropped two of their 
final three games, ending with 
a 13-12 win over Southeastern 
La., to cap the 5-6 season. 

"At the start of the season, I 
felt we had a chance to take 
part in the Division 1-AA 
playoffs," Williams said. "We 
had some great athletes, and I 
think we could have done well 
in the playoffs. 

This was the first year of the 
competition in the new 1-AA 
division, and NSU was ranked 
among the national 1-AA top 
ten' for the first half of the 

Even with the sub-par 
record, the Demons kept their 
home-field mystique alive. Of 
the five games played on the 
Astroturf of Harry "Rags" 
Turpin Stadium this season, 
NSU won four of them for its 
third straight 4-1 record at 

"I don't know what it is that 
makes us play so well at 
home," Williams said, "and I 
don't know what it is that 
affects us on the road. I know 

we play with more emotion in 
front of our own fans, but even 
that shouldn't make that big of 
a difference in the way we 

The Demons only won one of 
six games on the road this 
year, and NSU holds a 5-23 
mark over the past four 
seasons away from home. 

"A good recruiting year is 
vital for us now," Williams 
said. "We've got a lot of holes 
to fill, and most of them were 
people who had been starting 
for two or three years." 

All but one member of the 
offensive line, both tight ends 
and three of the top four wide 
receivers will be lost to 
graduation, while four 
members of the front seven on 
defense will not return for 
next season. In all, 17 seniors 
must be replaced, including 14 
who were full or part-time 

"It'll be tough for us to 
replace some of these people," 
Williams said. "Four years 
ago when they came in as 
freshmen, they had to play 
immediately because that was 
all we had, and they did a 
great job. We're to the point 
now, that we don't have to 
throw our young people into 

that kind of situation." 

There are bright spots, with 
the entire offensive and de- 
fensive backfields returning 
and some promising prospects 
set to fill some of the 
graduation gaps. "We'll be all 

right next season," Williams 
said, "because the people we 
have back have a lot of 
character and will want to 
improve over this past season. 
I think they'll be able to do it."

Demons Surprise Favored 
Lions 13-12 in Finale 

It's always nice to end a 
season on a winning note, but 
head coach A.L. Williams was 
especially happy about his 
Northwestern State 
University squad's per- 
formance Saturday night in 
the Demons' 13-12 comeback 
victory over Southeastern 

"We played just about as 
well as we could play in the 
second half," Williams said 
after the Demons had come 
back from a 12-0 halftime 
deficit and put a pair of touch- 
downs on the board in the 
second half against the 
nation's top-ranked Division 
11 team in scoring defense. 

However, the key to the 
contest was the Demon 
defense, which was highly 
porous against Lion's 
powerful rushing attack early 
in the contest but was very 
stingy in the second half. 

"We made some defensive 
adjustments at halftime," 

Waters Succumbs to Injuries 

Wyamond Waters, Nor- 
thwestern State University's 
stellar wide receiver for the 
past four football seasons, 
died early Sunday morning in 
Rapides Parish Hospital in 
Alexandria of injuries suf- 
fered in an automobile ac- 
cident one week ago. 

Waters, 21, died at 1 a.m. 
Sunday morning of pneumonia 
and other complications 
resulting from a one-car 
accident last Saturday 
morning, Nov. 18, on La. High- 
way 1 north of Boyce. 

Waters, who was in in- 
tensive care for several days 
following the accident, had 
been moved to a private room 
during the latter part of the 
week and was showing signs of 
improvement as late as 
I ii ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ii i fiin n 


"We are all shocked by the 
news," said NSU athletic 
director and head football 
coach A.L. Williams. "One of 
our staff members had talked 
to him Friday, and I had 
talked to his mother Saturday, 
and everybody had said that 
he was doing well." 

Waters had been in traction 
since the accident with a pos- 
sible broken neck and was 
partially paralyzed, but he 
had begun to regain feelings in 
his arms and legs. 

The six-foot, 185-pounder 
from Dallas, Tex. and South 
Oak Cliff High School had 
been hurled from the 
automobile when it swerved 
off the road and hit a bridge 
embankment before flipping 


over. A passenger in the 
automobile, NSU basketball 
player Frederick Piper, is still 
hospitalized in Alexandria 
with a broken leg and other 
cuts and bruises. 

Waters was NSU's second- 
leading all-time receiver in 
total yardage with 1,538 yards 
on 79 receptions during his 
career. He also had 13 touch- 
down catches and averaged 
19.5 yards per reception, with 
all four figures ranking among 
NSU's top three all-time 
receiving leaders. Waters is 
survived by his parents, Mr. 
and Mrs. C.R. Waters of 
Dallas. Funeral 
arrangements were in- 
complete as of Monday 

Williams said, "because they 
were doing what they wanted 
to do in the first half. We 
shifted the strength of our 
defense from side to side and 
it slowed them down some." 

The tactic obviously 
worked, because the Lions, 
who converted on five of seven 
third downs in the first half, 
did not manage another third- 
down conversion in the con- 
test, and, of course, didn't 
score over the final two 

Junior quarterback Kenny 
Philibert and freshman 
tailback Carlton Finister 
scored NSU's two touchdowns 
on runs of one and four yards 
respectively, but the spark to 
those two scores was junior 
Mark Schroeder, who came 
off the bench to rush for 81 
yards, the majority in the 
second half to help set up the 
two scores. 

Schroeder had not seen any 
action in the Demons' last two 
games because of an injured 
knee. "Mark was still playing 
hurt." said Williams, "but he 
did just a great job. He did 
what he had to do for us to win, 
and I think our whole squad 
did what they had to." 


Gridders Set 18 Records 

Northwestern State 
University's 1978 football 
team broke a total of 18 
records and tied six others 
during the season, with 
several outstanding individual 
performances highlighting the 
new marks. 

A total of 10 individual 
marks were broken and three 
others were equalled, while 
eight team marks were 
shattered and two others were 

The most noteworthy were 
the career receiving records 
established by senior Mike 
Almond of Bossier City. The 6- 
foot-2, 190-pounder ended his 
stellar career with 95 
receptions for 1,562 yards, 
breaking the old mark of 85 
receptions by Steve Gaspard 
from 1966-69 and the mark of 
1,484 yards on catches set by 
Al Phillips from 1967-70. 

Almond also set a new 
single-game reception record 
with 10 catches against 
Louisville during the season, 
shattering the old mark of 
eight set by Gaspard against 
Abilene Christian in 1968 and 
by Russ Gielow against South- 
western in 1966. 

However, the most amazing 
record was the one set by 
sophomore tailback Joe 
Delaney of Haughton, who 
rushed for an incredible 299 
yards against Nicholls State 
during the season to break 
both the school and state 
single-game rushing mark. 

The 299-yard effort of the 5- 
foot-10 speedster broke the old 
state mark of 267 yards set by 
Horace Belton of 
Southeastern. La. against 
Delta State in 1974, and top- 
pled the old school record of 
194 yards set by Matio Cage 
against Southeastern in 1973 
by more than 100 yards. The 
effort is also a national 
Division 1-AA record in the 
division established this year. 

Delaney's four tochdowns in 
that game also tied three other 
records for most touchdowns 
rushing in one game, most 
points scored in one game and 
mos points responsible for in 
one game. 

Most of the other individual 
records were set by senior 
punter-kicker Dennis Pen- 
dergraft of Chalmette, who 

ended his four-year career 
with four career kicking 
marks. He set new records for 
most punts in a career with 207 
breaking the old mark of 185 
by Randy Walker from 1970- 
73; most yards punted in a 
career with 8,093, breaking 
Walker's mark of 7,355; most 
field goal attempts in a career 
with 72, shattering the old 
mark of 68 set by Dennis 
Wilkinson from 1968-71. 

Pendergraft also set one 
single-game record and tied 
another during the year, with 
his 11 punts against Arkansas 
State equalling the mark for 
most punts in a game and his 

463 yards punting in that 
contest breaking the old 
standard of 454 yards set by 
Walker against McNeese in 

Sophomore Connie Hatcher 
of Jena had the only other 
individual record, with his 
seven kickoff returns against 
Northeast Louisiana breaking 
the old mark of six kickoff 
returns in a game set by Mario 
Cage against Delta State in 
1973 and later tied by two 

Team-wise, the Demons set 
six season records and two 
single-game marks while 
tying one of each. NSU ran a

The Lions, who ended the 
season only allowing their 
opponents an average of only 
7.1 points per game to lead the 
country among Division n 
schools, jumped in front by 6-0 
in the first quarter when 
JohnnyWells and Leslie 
Jackson connected on a 33- 
yard scoring toss. Soccer-style 
kicker Frank Londono, who 
later toed field goals of 33 and 
29 yards, hit the left upright on 
his extra point attempt. 

It was Londono's only miss 
PAT of the year and was only 
his second miss in the past two 
seasons, with the one miss last 
year also coming against 
NSU. It turned out to be the 
difference in the contest. 

Finister's third-quarter 
score and Dennis Pen- 
dergraft's conversion made it 
12-7, and Hhilibe-t capped a 14- 
play, 93-yard drive with his 
one-yard plunge with 6:15 to 
play. The win snapped a six- 
game winning streak by the 
Lions but still left them with 
one of the state's best record, 
a 7-3-1 mark. It also snapped a 
three-game SLU win streak 
over the Demons and evened 
the 40-year series at 20 wins

from Bossier City, captured 
NSU's highest award in what 
may be one of the most 
controversial contests in-years. 

The new Mr. and Miss NSU, 
who both won by huge margins, 
were elected in a campus wide 
election last Wednesday, 
November 29. In other election 
results, the NSU Potpourri was 
granted a $2.50 fee increase to 
take effect in fall of 1979. 

Miss Bartek is an elementary 
education major and is the 
daughter of Lt. Col and Mrs. 
Joe Bartek. The petite beauty 
ihas served as NSU 
cheerleader, a member of 
Purple Jackets and is 
curerently President of Sigma 
Sigma Sigma sorority. Mary L 
was elected as the 1976 State 
Fair Queen, and was a member 
of the 1977 Homecoming and 
1978 State Fair Courts. She was 
chosen for two years as a 
member of Kappa Sigma 's 
dream court, and was first 
runnerup in the 1976 Lady of the 
Bracelet pageant. 

McKeliar is a three year 
member of Student 
Government and has served in 
the capacity of Senator-at- 
Large and Treasurer. He is 
currently SGA president and 
represents Northwestern as a 
member of Louisiana's Student 
Advisory Council. Mr. 
McKeliar is a member and past 
treasurer of Kappa Sigma 
fraternity and was chosen as a 
member of Who's Who in 
American Colleges and 

The winners were formally 
and traditionally announced at 
the Christmas lights concert 
Saturday night at the coliseum. 
They were, however also 
previously announced in a 
private meeting held earlier in 
the week in the student 
governmnet conference room.

Jaycees announce Natchitoches pageant 

The Natchitoches Area Jaycees will 
sponsor their second annual Miss 

Greater Natchitoches Pageant on 
Saturday, Feb. 10, 1979, in the A. A. 
Fredericks Fine Arts Auditorium on the 
NSU campus. 



Nolton Causey, Jaycee chairman of 
the event, said mat entrants are now 

being sought for the pageant, which is 
an official Miss Louisiana Preliminary 

and will be conducted according to all 
Miss America guidelines. 

Causey said that any female between 
the ages of 17 and 26 who will be a high 
school graduate by Labor Day of 1979 is 
eligible to enter the pageant. Con- 

The fifth issue of Argus, NSU's multi- 
media magazine, went to press last 
week and will be available for 
distribution in two weeks. 
The magazine will feature artwork, 
photography, short stories, essays, and 

In keeping with the philisophy of Argus, 
the magazine is representative of the 
student body with contributors whose 
majors range from forestry to clinical 
psychology to advertising. 
Although a relatively new publication, 

Argus is attempting to establish a 
tradition of its own. In the past, work 
from the English creative writing class 

has been featured. In this issue the 
class is represented by the limerick, a 

type of hght verse characterized by wit 
and bodiness. 

Distribution of Argus will be similar 
to that of the Potpourri. For the first 
time Argus will be available at no cost 
to students and may be claimed by 

presenting their I.D. card. Information 
concerning date of distribution will bp 

aired on KNWD and posted in the 
Student Union. 

Those intersted in joining the Argus 
staff or obtaining information about the 
magazine are invited to come by the 
office in Room 316A of the Arts and 
Science Building, or call 3574486.

"We want to encourage as many NSU 
students as possible to enter the 
pageant," said Causey. "We consider 
Northwestern students as citizens of 
Natchitoches, and all students are 
el'giWe to compete." 

"We are hoping for a large number of

In a formal letter sent to Terry 
McCarty, Commissioner of Elections 
on Friday, December 1, the Mr. and 
Miss NSU election was contested for the 
first time in three years. 

Edith Harris and Roscoe Lewis, run- 
off candidates for the honor position, 
named McCarty 's "violations" as the 
main reasons for contestion. 

The formal letter read "We, Edith M. 
Harris and Roscoe Lewis, so hereby 
officially on November 30, 1978 contest 
the election procedures utilized in the 
November 29, 1978 run-off election of 
Mr. and Miss NSU. Reasons for the 

above stated contestation are as 
follows: Violation of Articles 1; in- 
tentional viloation of article 9 until 
corrected; 10 and 15; Article A under 
section 2 of duties of Commissioner of 
Elections as stated in the Northwestern 
State University Election code. 2. 
Demand a recount of the votes because 
of several reports of 88 unaccounted for 
votes. 3. Election results were in Mc- 
Carthy's dorm room when questioned 
about the election results by Harris and 
Lewis on November 29, 1978 and not in 
the Commissioners' office. 4. List of 
poll workers drawn up by Com- 
missioner of Elections was voted on but 
were never submitted to the Election 
Board it the meeting in which they 
were voted on. 5. Biased article quoting 
Commissioner of Elections printed in 
Current Sauce prior to elections with 
inaccurate information quite possibly 
altered the voting decisions of many 
supporters of not only Miss Harris but 
Mr. Lewis as well. 

It is the sincere desire of both Edith 
M. Harris and Roscoe Lewis that the 
above stated contestation for the afore- 
mentioned reasons be given the proper 
attention they are due as legitimate 
requests by the proper committee (s)." 

A meeting was called Friday af- 
ternoon in the SGA office at 4 pm, but as 
all parties were not available to attend, 
it was postponed until Monday at 5 pm. 

Commissioner of Elections McCarty 
issued a statement Sunday, saying, "On 
Friday afternoon at 4 pm an informal 
discussion was heard on the prose and 
cons of the contestation. A formal 
meeting has been called for Monday, 
Dec. 4, at 5:00 to discuss the letter of 
contestation and render a decision." 



Three major NSU musical groups 
will combine forces Friday, December 
8 at 7:30 pm in the Student Union Ba- 
llroom to present a program of 
Christmas music. 

The concert, entitled Hilaritis, is co- 
sponsored by the Student Union 
Governing Board and will include the 
Chamber Orchestra under the direction 
of Richard Rose; the Concert Choir 
under the direction of John Taylor; and 
the Jazz Ensemble under the direction 

of concert co-ordinator Wayne Black- 

"The concert will feature traditional 
songs like Joy to the World and Silent 
Night and others not so traditional like 
Christmas Stocking." Blackwell added. 

The Natchitoches Chamber of 
Commerce will provide free refresh- 
ments and several NSU Greek 
organizations are decorating trees to be 
placed in the ballroom. 
The concert is open to all.

It's time to look for the 

1978 can be described as a 
turning point for Northwestern 
It came in like a lion and went 
out like a lion, and the future 
seems likely to continue in the 
same fashion. 

Sure, Dr. Bienvenu is just one 
man. He hasn't solved all of our 
problems yet. 

Maybe Norhtwestern will 
sincerely realize that NO one 
person can do it all and each 
man working together will 
make Northwestern what it 
should be. 

That might be one of the best 
Christmas presents that any of 
us can get. 

Student cites 
campus problems 

Dear Editor: 

It has come to my attention 
through various occurences on 
campus that there is definitely 
some things wrong with NSU. I 
shall try to bring your attention 
to them by way of this letter, 
and with hope that some things 
will improve. 

First, there is the SGA. I will 
be the first to admit that it 
seems to have improved 
somewhat, and with the belated 
SGA newsletter coming out, 
things does look somewhat 
brighter. But it will be noted 
that the Commissioner of 
Elections does not seem to print 
the vote tally of the winners and 
losers in various elections in the 
students of NSU would like to 
know who got how many votes, 
and we are entitled to this, don't 
you think. It also seems odd 
that the Commissioner of 
Elections roommate got more 
votes in the class senator 
election for his class than did 
anyone else in that particular 
race. Also, the SGA president's 
sister got appointed to a 

Dear Sir: 

Yes it's true there are 
problems at Northwestern. 
There always will be some. 
However, for the record, I do 
not find it funny that James 
Mitchell got more votes than 
anyone in his race, as he WAS 
an incumbent in that position 
and was the only incumbent 
running. Records are for public 
knowledge if one would like to 
investigate. Also Diane 
McKellar, though having the 
same last name and being from 
the same hometown as the SGA 
President, is in NO way related 
to him, lthough that is an 
understandable mistake that 
many have ough CURRENT 
SAUCE, that in no way reflects 

senator position, and you, with 
all the work that you have to do 
with the CURRENT SAUCE, 
gets appointed as 
Parliamentarian for the SGA. It 
does cause one to wonder! 

Second, the Midnight 
breakfast the SGA and SUGB 
sponsored was a disaster. First 
the Blacks "cut up", and then 
the Whites. 

Third, the SGA gives out too 
much money to different 
organizations, such as the 
Drama dept. They are always 
wanting money. If only they 
would put out better plays. 

Fourth, and last, something 
does need to be done about the 
laxity of the Campus Security 
in doing their duties, especially 
of giving parking tickets. They 
( the Campus Security) drive 
right by Iberville Cafeteria and 
there are cars blocking the 
driveway through the parking 
lot and they give no tickets ! The 
students will continue to park 
there until they are stopped, it 
is high time tickets were being 
re-issued! Sincerely, 
Name Withheld upon Request. 

upon Terry McCarty. I decide 
what is printed and what isn't. I 
will NEVER as Editor, print 
tabulations of an honor election 
such as Homecoming, State 
Fair, etc. You are right 
however, that students have a 
right in Senate (etc.) elections. 
We will remember that in the 
Spring. As for the breakfast, 
Blame the NSU students who 
caused the commotion. No one 
else was reflected upon. 
Finally, Campus Security could 
afford to start working a little 
more, couldn't they? With 
parking problems, tires being 
slashed, etc. you would think 
that they could come up with 
more solutions than an attempt 
at buying a radar gun...

Carter Prepares for 2nd Term 
White House Staff Aims for '80 

though President Carter 
has not announced that he 
will seek another term, the 
White House staff is qui- 
etly gearing up for the 1980 
campaign. Carter's aides 
have no doubt that he will 
be the Democratic candi- 
date. In the backrooms of 
the White House, there- 
fore, the staff has been 
shaping its 1980 strategy. 

Carter won the presi- 
dency by campaigning as 
an outsider who would 
bring a fresh perspective 
to Washington. It may be 
awkward for him to strike 
the same pose in 1980. He 
might not appear to the 
voters to be an outsider 
after he has been running 
the government for four 

Nevertheless, he will at- 
tempt to maintain the 
same image. He'll con- 
tinue to pose as an outsid- 
er, with an anti-Washing- 
ton perspective. But he'll 
claim that he has now 
gained the experience he 
will need to accomplish his 

The people who have em- 
barrassed Carter during 
his first term will be 
pushed into the back- 
ground. He will try to 
disassociate himself from 
his former money man, 
Bert Lance, who faces pos- 
sible indictment for his 
banking practices. 
Carter's former campaign 
chief, Hamilton Jordan, 
has developed an image as 
a swinger and carouser. 
Jordan will stay in the 
background in 1980. 

Aides expect inflation to 
be the main issue in the 
campaign. The president is 
gambling that he can con- 

trol inflation by taking the 
conservative approach. 
But already, labor leaders 
are complaining that 
Carter's policies benefit 
bankers and businessmen 
at the expense of the work- 

Black leaders have also 
complained that unem- 
ployment among blacks is 
higher than it was during 
Carter's 1976 presidential 
campaign. So Carter could 
face a revolt in 1980 from 
the labor unions, ethnic 
groups and liberal consti- 
tuency, which gave him his 
strongest backing in 1976. 

This raises the possiblity 
that California's governor 
Jerry Brown or Massa- 
chuetts' Sen. Ted Kennedy 
might challenge Carter for 
the Democratic nomina- 
tion in 1980. Our sources 
say the president will meet 
them head on, entering 
every primary and taking 
on every challenger. 

But he could be 
hampered in the general 
election by the Republican 
victories this year. GOP 
governors now control the 
political machines in such 
key states as Oregon, 
Pennsylvania, Tennessee, 
Texas and Wisconsin. 

Most presidents have 
been re-elected. The pre- 
liminary signs indicate 
that Carter could be an 

Financial Disclosure: In 
the coming months, we will 
personally call on all of the 
1980 candidates for the 
presidency to open up their 
income tax returns to pub- 
lic inspection. Rep. Phil 
Crane, R-Ill., has already 
announced his candidacy 
for the White House. So we 
asked him to show us his 

returns, which he did. 

Crane's income last year 
was $88,177. He paid a 
federal tax of $23,765 and a 
state tax of $1,790. This is 
27 percent of his income, 
which is considerably 
more than most taxpayers 
in his bracket pay. 

The handsome, square- 
jawed Crane collected the 
majority of his income 
from the taxpayers - 
$54,000 in salary. He 
earned $24,200 from lec- 
tures, and made an addi- 
tional $3,000 from his Indi- 
ana farm. The rest is mis- 
cellaneous income, such as 

Thus Crane is setting a 
good example for other 
presidential candidates to 

Diplomatic Digest: An 
estimated 60,000 Nicaragu-

new outbreak of civil 
strife. Some 10,000 of them 
are in Costa Rican refugee 
camps maintained by the 
Red Cross and the Young 
Men's Christian Associa- 
tion. The refugees endure 
drenching rains and 
scorching temperatures in 
their tent cities. Yet, they 
obviously prefer these 
harsh living conditions to 
life in Nicaragua.

Qaddafi has been slow to 
pay for the training. The

Crow, Lyons, and Pittard.

Harris's letter explaining that 
the total amount of votes cast 
for Miss NSU was 787. 717-2 
equals 393 plus 1 equals 394.

would have had to receive 395 
votes. Therefore, a run-off 
election will be held on Nov. 
29, 1978. for Mr. and Mrs. 
NSU. The winners will not be

Council for Deans of Education has reaffirmed its position of 
support for State Superintendent of Education Kelly Nix in 
the administration of the National Teacher Examination for 
certification of teachers in the state. Council chairman Dr. 
Robert Alost, dean of the College of Education at 
Northwestern State University, said that the organization 
rearfirmer its position during a special meeting held in 
conjunction with the convention of the Louisiana Association 
of Educators in Baton Rouge. According to Alost, officials of 
the state's 22 institutions currently preparing persons to 
teach in Louisiana 1 feel that the examination will be a 
device that would evaluate the knowledge a person has 
before going into the classroom."

FUNERAL SERVICES HELD— Funeral services for 
Wyamond Waters, NSU's senior football star who died last 
week, of injuries suffered in a recent automobile accident 
were held Saturday at 1 : 30 p.m. in Dallas. Services were held 
at the Church of the Living God on Sunnyvale Rd. NSU 
athletic director and head football coach A. L. Williams 
delivered a short testimonial during the services. Waters, 21, 
was seriously injured in a one-car accident on Nov. 18, the 
day of NSU's season-ending football game, on La. Highway 
No. 1 north of Boyce. He apparently lost control of his vehicle 
and struck a bridge rail, causing the car to flip over. 

State news briefs 

HEAVY DAMAGE IN BOSSIER— The early morning 
tornado which ripped through Bossier City Sunday left two 
young sisters dead and caused roughly $100 million worth of 
damages, according to city authorities. More than 200 
persons were injured during the violent weather and 4500 
persons were driven from their homes. The tornado hit about 
1:50 ajn. near the Central Park Subdivision. Motels, 
businesses, and apartment complexes in the area were 
heavily damaged as the twister made its way through the 
city. Bossier Mayor Marvin Anding imposed a 6 p.m. to 6 
ajn. curfew to prevent looting and other problems in the 
devastated city. Governor Edwin Edwards declared a state 
of emergency in the city, while Senator Bennett Johnston 
said Bossier City would probably be declared a 
federaldisaster area, making the residents eligible for low 
interest loans. 

NSU BUDGET APPROVED— The Board of Trustees for 
State Colleges and Universities approved a $15,008,351 
operating budget for Northwestern at its December meeting 
on the NSU campus Saturday. A $20,322,014 five year capital 
outlay program for NSU also received the board's approval. 
These amounts may be reduced before receiving final 
legislative approval in the spring. Nine Louisiana schools 
had their operating budgets approved during Saturday's

with less than a couple of 
hundred a week for spending 
money, others would be happy 
if there was enough left over 
at the end of the month to buy 
a pair of used jeans. Money, or 
the lack of it, can really cause 
a problem when there is just 
not enough of it for Joe C. 
Student to stay in school When 
this is the case, financial 
assistance is needed. How it is 
obtained is relatively easy 
once one knows the system. 

Every student applying for 
financial assistance must fill 
out a ACT Family Financial 
Statement, obtained at the 
Financial Aid Office. Usually 
it takes approximately 21 days 
for this form to be processed 
and sent back to the Financial 
Aid Office. This costs the 
student $4.00 if he is applying 
for any of the federal aid 
programs in which the school 
participates, The student need 
not pay anything if he is ap- 
plying only for a Basic 
Educational Opportunity 
Grant (BEOG). 

After the office has received 
the form they compute the 
students needs and, money 
permitting, put that student in 
the program that he both 
qualifies for and is the most 
beneficial to him. One of the 
most common causes of delay 
is me improper filling out of 
the ACT form. To combat this 
the Financial Aid Office will 
offer a supervised ACT form 
filling session in early 
January, the exact date to be 
released later. In this session 
the student will be able to ask 
questions concerning any part 
of the form. The sessio n will 
also point out areas which 
have frequently been problem 
areas and explains them 

throughly. The other 
recurring delaying factor is 
the student himself. 

The deadline to get help for 
the fiscal year starting in the 
summer semester is April 1. If 
the student is not going to 
summer school and only 
wants aid for the fall and spr- 
ing semester then the ap- 

Student, who is a single fresh- 
man living on campus. His 
budget for a semester is 
$1183.00. This includes tuition,

subtracted any BEOG money,

Joe, $153,00), and any 
scholarships. The office then

The programs that NSU 
participates in are the 
National Direct Student 
Loans, Nursing Student Loan 
Program, Supplemental

Scholarship, and College Work 
Study Program. The Finan- 
cial Aid Office has nothing to 
do with the BEOG program 
except for distributing the 
application form (standard 
ACT form) and dispensing the 
awarded money. 

The students financial needs 
for the semester are computed 
by the use of a federaly ap-

encompass nearly every 
living situation. For an 
example let us use Joe C. 

If you drive a new Grand

probably did not read past the 
first paragraph and could care 
less. If you've applied for aid 
before and was turned down 
because you just missed 
qualifying, try again this 
semester. The amount of 
income your family can have 
and still be eligible has been 
raised this semester and 
many people can now qualify 
were before they could not. If 
you have never applied before 
go ahead and try. Every little 
bit helps, and besides 
sometimes you just have to 
eat more than the three meals 
the cafeteria provides. 
Everyone knows that having

Unique art 
form dis 


By Jerry Jones 

Photography is an unique 
art form as well as one that is 
universally appreciated. It is 
unique among the older forms 
in the increasingly complex 
equipment the artist must 
manipulate and the stark 
reality of the moments in time 
that it freezes. 

While it is true the camera 
does not lie, the artistic 
photographer is constantly 
looking for an unusual and 
thought provoking way to 
picture a subject. The subject 
may be seemingly mundane 
but the photographer will seek 
to shine a light on whatever 
facet of human nature it 
represents. These facts may 
range from the dramatic to 
the humorous and draw from 
the entire range of human 

Anyone can learn to ap- 
preciate photography because 
one can usually identify quite 
easily with the subject. One 
major point to look for in good 
photography is singleness of 
idea. The picture should 
illuminate the central idea 
and not have any distractions 
from it. 

There are many examples 
of good photography in the 
photo exibit in the Fine Arts 
Gallery. The exhibit, to be 
held until December 8, has the 
work of four photographers on 
display. The photographers 
are Joe Moran, Robert Tooke, 
B.A. Cohen, and Bill Bryant. 
There are some excellent 
examples of artistic 
photography in this exhibit. 
There are many that bear 
mentioning in this article. 
Two that are very good are 

from "Of Dreams and 
Dreamers", the exibit of Joe 
Moran. The titles of these 
photographs are "American 
Dream" and "Lunar Dog". In 
"American Dream" an old 
lady is sitting next to a bar- 
beque pit and makes you 
wonder if this was the dream 
of her generation. 

Bill Bryant's pictures 
concern themselves with 
dramatic shapes and textures 
often accompanied with some 
well-done dark room work. 
One part of his exibit was 
entitled "Family Album". 
These pictures were given a 
different perspective by the 
use of a technique called 
solorazation. Though many 
pictures were interesting only 
because of this technique, 
some lent themselves quite 
strikingly to it and could 
easily stand alone. 

The most impressive work 
was displayed by B.A. Cohen. 
Every photograph was well 
thought out, easily identified, 
and consistant in quality. It is 
hard to single out a picture as 
best of the group but two stand 
out and claim attention. These 
are "Coverage", showing 
Govenor Edwards in a pensive 
but bustling moment, and 
"Pastoral", a shot showing 
beauty in a desolate church. 

Go to the exhibit at the Fine 
Arts Gallery and see for 
yourself how a good 
photographer can turn 
snapshots into an art form. 
While you are there, check out 
the exibit in front to the 
gallery done by the students in

Annual Charity Bowl Tonight 

Northwestern State University's Kappa Sigma 
Fraternity chapter will sponsor its 3rd annual 
Charity Bowl Football Game tonight, but this year it 
will be under a very different format. 

In this year's game, which is scheduled for 7:30 
p.m. in Turpin Stadium on NSU campus, the NSU 
Kappa Sigma chapter will be meeting the Kappa 
Sigma chapter from La. Tech in the contest. 

"In the past, we've usually played another 
campus fraternity," said event coordinator Bill 
Hochstetler, "but we felt that meeting members of 
our fraternity from another school would make for a 
more interesting game." 

The game will be a full-contact, full-pads football 
game played under high school rules, featuring 12- 
minute quarters. High school officials will be used 
for the contest. 

Tickets are $2 apiece and are available at the NSU 
Student Union today and at the gate tonight. 
Proceeds from the event will go to the area Heart 
Fund Drive and to the NSU Demon Booster Club. 

"We are hoping for a big turnout for the contest," 

Hochstetler said. "It should be an exciting football 
game, and I feel we have some quality players on 
our squad that will be worth seeing." 

Notables on the NSU Kappa Sigma squad include 
quarterback Roger Sullivan, formerly of Benton, 
linebacker Randy Bonnette of Natchitoches-Central 
and center Alton Burkhalter and nose guard Mark 
Mathews, both of whom played at Natchitoches 

The NSU squad is being coached by former 
Northwestern players Richard Ware, Russell Roge 
and Roscoe Lewis, while former Tech standouts 
Randy Robertson and David Abney are coaching 
the Tech Kappa Sigma squad. 

NSU's acclaimed Cane River Belles Dance Line 
will be performing at halftime. The contest will be 
broadcast in the Natchitoches area over campus 
radio station KNWD-FM beginning at 7:20 p.m. and 
will be videotaped for later playback by WSBC-TV, 
Channel 9. 

The only difference in rules in tonight's battle will 
be the elimination of kickoffs. Officials felt that the 

risk of injury to the players would not justify 
kickoffs, so the teams will begin play at their 20 
yard line. 

Ware has put his squad through nearly a month of 
workouts in preparation for the contest. The team 
has been in full pads for most practice sessions 
since the conclusion of the Thanksgiving holidays. 

The biggest concern for the coaches has been 
conditioning. Most of the players did participate in 
high school football and have a good knowledge of 
proper techniques. However, as could be expected, 
few members of the team were in good enough 
condition to play a full football game, and 
prevention of injuries is directly related to 

Most of the athletes from the Sig flag football 
team that won the All-College mens' championship 
this year are expected to participate in the contest 
tonight. There are reports that both sides may 
spring surprises in the form of "ringers" who are 
either part-time students or faculty members and 
are members of the fraternity.

Almond, Washington 
Take Top Honors 

Senior wide receiver Mike Almond and Senior defensive 
tackle Willie Washintton walked away with the top awards 
Monday night as Northwestern State University honored its 
1978 football team in the annual NSU Football Banquet. 

Almond, a 6-foot-2, 190 pounder from Bossier City-Bossier, 
won the Permanent Offensive Captain Award, while 
Washington, a 6-foot-3 250 pounder from Shreveport-Fair 
Park, was honored as NSU's Permanent Defensive Captain. 

The two awards highlighted the banquet, which was 
sponsored by the Natchitoches Rotary Club and was attended 
by almost 400 NSU supporters who packed into the St. Mary's 
gymnasium for the event. 

Three other awards were presented during the event, the 
Scholastic Award and two special awards. Junior fullback 
Brett Knecht of Natchitoches-St. Mary's won the Scholastic 
Award after compiling a 3.76 grade average in business 

Dr. Jolly Harper and Norm Fletcher were honored with 
special awards. Dr. Harper, the founder of the NSU 
Quarterback Club, was honored for his long years of service 
to the athletic department, while Fletcher, a veteran of 27 
years of radio play-by-play broadcasts of NSU athletics, was 
lauded for more than a quarter-century of support to the 

Also honored during the banquet were a group of 10 former 
NSU standouts who were featured as part of a salute to 
Northwestern Football Through the Years. Those honorees 
included CO. Holland of the 1913 squad, Burton Weaver of 
the 1917 team, Earl Aidin of the 1926 squad, Jack Clayton of 
the 1932 team and later NSU's head football coach Walter 
Ledet of the 1936 squad, Ted Wright of the unbeaten 1939 
team, Dan Carr of the 1950 squad, Glen Talbert of the 1960 
team, Ross Guinn of the undefeated 1966 team and Richard 
Ware of the 1970 squad. 

Jerry Pierce of NSU's Division of Informational Services 
served as master of ceremonies. 

Northwestern State University will be 
attempting to halt its current three-game 
losing streak tomorrow night when the 
Demons play host to vastly-improved La. 
College in the 69th meeting between the two 

Tipoff is set for 7:30 p.m. in Prather 
Coliseum for the renewal of the ancient 
rivalry, which will be preceded by a 5 : 15 p.m. 
contest matching NSU's Lady Demons 
against the Kittens of La. College. 

The Demons are 0-3 on the year after a 72-66 
loss to Northeast La. in their home opener last 
Thursday night, which followed previous 
losses to Centenary and McNeese State. NSU 
will be trying to prevent losing its fourth 
straight game at the start of the season for the 
first time since the 1968-69 season. 

"We did a lot of things better Thursday 
night than we had in our earlier games," said 
NSU head coach Tynes Hildebrand. "We 
shot the ball better and we played better 
defense, but we're still getting hurt by 
turnovers and poor inside play." 

The Demons hit a blazing 56.3 percent from 
the field in the contest, led by the 9-of-ll 
showing of sophomore forward Jim Hoops, 
but committed 18 turnovers in the contest and 
were outrebounded 29-25 by the taller Indians. 
In addition, NLU scored 16 points off offensive 
rebound in the contest. 

This will be thesecond straight home game 
for the Demons and will be the second 
straight time they have gone up against a 
taller foe. The Wildcats of coach Billy Allgood 
stand at 4-0 on the season prior to the 
Mississippi College Tournament Friday and 
Saturday and a home game against Xavier 
Monday night. 

The Cats', who hold two wins over Sam 
Houston State and have also beaten Southern 
Arkansas and Southeastern La., faced 
Livingston University in the first round of the 

Mississippi College meet. 

Northwestern holds a dominant 50-18 lead in 
the overall series between the two clubs 
which began in the 1945-46 season, but the 
series has been much closer in recent 
seasons. The two teams split last year's 
games, NSU winning 93-88 in overtime in 
Natchitoches and La. College winning 80-56 in 

The Demons are led by Hoops, the 6-foot-5 
sophomore who is currently averaging 21.3 
points per game and is hitting an incredible 
66.7 percent from the floor. He leads three 
Demons in double figures, with 6-foot-5 junior 
guard Jerry Lewis, also a returning starter, 
.sporting a 15.7 average and 6-foot-6 junior 
Guy Charles scoring 12.3 points per outing 
from his post position. 

Other likely starters for NSU include 6-foot- 
5 junior forward Andre Bailey (4.7), the 
team's top rebounder with a 7.7 average, and 
six-foot sophomore point guard Brey (7.3), 
who is averaging 5.3 assists per game. 

The Wildcats have their own individual 
scoring star in 6-foot -8 senior forward Paul 
Poe, who scored 30 points in LC's recent win 
over Sam Houston and is averaging 27.2 
points and a team-leading 8.8 rebounds per 
game. Poe is also hitting on 63.6 percent of his 
shots from the floor. 

Other likely starters for La. College include 
6-foot-7 junior forward Ronnie Procter (14-0), 
seven-foot junior center Les Chappell (13.5) 
and junior guards Michael Talbert (8.0) and 
James Harmon (7.5). Sixth man Ken Daenen 
(5.8) will also see action at the guard slots. 

After tomorrow night's contest, the Demons 
will meet South Alabama in Prather Coliseum 
Saturday night in the last game of its three- 
game home stand. NSU travels to meet 
Toledo and Cleveland State on a two-game 
trip in Ohio next week.

...Ladies Also Face LC 

Northwestern State 
University's Lady Demons 
continue their search for a 
consistent victory com- 
bination, and that search will 
not be an easy one tomorrow 
night when the NSU squad 
plays host to the powerful 
Kittens of La. College. 

Tipoff is set for 5:15 p.m. in 
Prather Coliseum on the NSU 
campus, with that contest to 
be followed by the men's 
contest at 7:30 p.m. between 
the Demons and La. College's 
Wildcats. The Lady Demon 
contest will be broadcast over 
KDBH-FM (97.7 mHz) in 
Natchitoches with Dan Mc- 
Donald and Buddy Wood 
mikeside beginning at 5:05 

The Lady Demons stand at 
1-3 on the season and have lost 
their last two contests, "In- 
cluding a 77-66 setback at the 
hands of Northeast Louisiana 
last Thursday night in the first 
of a six-game home stand. 
NSU had previously beaten 
New Orleans but lost to Tulane 
and McNeese State. 

The Kittens, on the other 
hand, hold a 3-2 record prior to 
games Friday night against 
New Orleans and Monday 
night against East Texas 
Baptist, and the LC squad is 
heavily favored in both con- 
tests. The Kittens have lost 
only to Xavier and La. Tech 

this season. 

"La. College has an out- 
standing team," said NSU 
head coach Pat Nolen. "They 
have good shooters, they 
rebound well and they don't 
make many mistakes. They're 
probably the best team we've 
played so far this season, and 
we've got a lot of places to 
improve before we meet 

The Lady Demons are led by 
5-foot-7 sophomore Joan 
Darbonne, who exploded for 28 
points against NLU Thursday 
night and sports a 19.0 
average. Freshman Marilyn 
Gates at 5-foot-ll leads the 
team in rebounding with a 10.0 
average and is second in 
scoring with a 10.8 norm. 

Other probable starters for 
NSU include 5-foot-7 

sophomore guard Linda Jones 

(9.5) ; 5-foot-8 senior forward 
Dianna Cary (7.8) and 5-foot- 
ll junior forward Theresa 
Long (6.0). 

The Kittens of coach 
Carolyn Spears are led by 
sophomore Sheila Thompson, 
who currently sports a 25.0 
average along with ranking 
second on the team in 
rebounding with an 8.2 norm. 
Other probable starters in- 
clude sophomore guard Dans 
Cain (12.4) freshman forward 
Martha Warwick (11.4), junior 
center Angela Self (10.4) and 
senior guard Debbie Dixon 

(7.6) . 

The Lady Demons are also 
at home this Saturday to face 
La. Tech in a 5: 15 p.m. contest 
prior to the men's game 
against South Alabama.

Indians Rally to Dump 
Demons in Thriller 

by Dong Ireland 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

Ail-American Calvin Natt 
gunned in a game-high 30 
points to lead Northeast 
Louisiana to an exciting come- 
from-behind 72-65 basketball 
win over Northwestern State 
University last Thursday 
night in Prather Coliseum. 

Natt, who just 35 days ago 
underwent surgery to remove 
torn cartilege in his knee, 
canned 11 of 18 shots and was 
eight for nine from the free 
throw line. The 6-5 standout, 
sixth in the nation last season 
in rebounding, grabbed nine 
caroms to take game honors in 

that department also. 

Natt and his Indian team- 
mates had to struggle to upend 
a gutty Demon outfit which 
came into the contest as much 
as 20 point underdogs. The 
Demons scrapped and hustled 
their way into a surprising 32- 
30 halftime edge and held a 
seven-point lead on five oc- 
casions in the second half 
before the visitors rallied in 
the final minutes. 

Northwestern was able to 
battle on even terms with the 
Indians thanks mostly to a fine 
shooting effort from the floor. 
Coach Tynes Hildebrand's 
crew hit 56.3 per cent of its' 
shots, paced by forward Jim 

Independents Earn Volleyball Titles 

The intramural volleyball proved to be fun-filled and 
exciting with several upsets. 

In the women's play, No. 4 ranked Tri Sigma upset No. 1 
ranked Delta Zeta to go on to beat Phi Mu for the sorority 
championship. Phi Mu, who had been 3rd in the sorority 
division, earlier upset No. 2 ranked Sigma Kappa. In the 
independent division things went more according to plan. 
The Hot Dogs, last years champions, defeated the Upsetters, 
while the unknowns won over BSU. Then theNo. 1 ranked Hot 
Dogs defeated the No. 2 ranked Unknowns for the 
independent championship. For all-campus championship 
the Hot Dogs defeated Tri Sigma in two games, 15-11 and 15- 

In the men's competition, the Cane River Raiders, ranked 
4th, upset the No. 1 ranked Condors to advance to the 

independent championship. Beaver's Team then slipped past 
BSU to earn a berth in the finals of the independent division. 
Beaver's Team then handily stopped the Cane River Raiders 
with scores of 15-7 and 15-11. 

For the all campus it was the TKE's against Be*ver*s 
Team. This match proved to be the match of the night as the 
two teams were almost evenly matched. The graceful TTCE's 
easily won the first game by a score of 15-3. But Beaver's 
Team was not yet ready to bow out and came back to win the 
second game 15-11. Then in the third game, which seemed to 
last forever despite the almost unreturnable spikes of Mario 
Denys of the TKE's, Beavers Team pulled it out with s score 
of 15-12 to win the men's All-Campus Finals. 

Hoops' nine-for-11 and guard 
Jerry Lewis' nine-of 16. Hoops 
had 24 points and Lewis added 

It was Lewis who sparked 
the Demons early, bombing in 
eight of NSU's first ten points, 
two of those coming on a dunk 
shot after a steal. They steady 
Hoops chipped in later in the 
half with an eight-point streak 
of his own to push the Demons 
on top 20-18. 

NLU ended the half in 
spectacular fashion when 
postman Eugene Robinson 
slammed home an errant Natt 
desperation shot as the buzzer 
sounded, but it was the 
Demons who took control of 
the contest early into the 
second half. 

Lewis zipped in two straight 
18-footers, the last on coming 
with 13:42 left, to give NSU a 
47-40 lead. But the inside 
power of the Indians proved to 
be the Demon's downfall, as 
NLU bumped in three missed 
shots to close to within two at 

Then the lead changed 
hands for the seventh and final 
time with 9:15 remaining on a 
four-point play. Indian Donald 
Wilson shot a short jumper to 
tie things up at 52-52, and 
Hoops was whistled for 
pushing Ronald Frazier 
during the shot. Frazier hit 

both ends of his one-ana-one to 
move NLU ahead. 

The Demons pulled even 
once more with 4 : 25 left on two 
Hoops freebies, but Natt 
scored four quick points to 
make it 64-60. NLU stretched 
it out in the final minute and 
Robinson ended the second 
half just as he had the first, 
with a slammer, to provide the 
72-65 final.

Despite a 28 point effort by Joan Darbonne 
the Lady Demons roundballers lost to the 
Northeast Lady Indians 77-66 last Thursday 
night at Prather Coliseum. 

Darbonne, who chunked in 22 of her 28 
tallies in the first half, proved to be the only 
consistent Lady Demon all night. 

The Lady Demons jumped out to a narrow 
lead to begin the game but NLU's superior 
height and percentage shooting took away the 
NSU lead for good with 8: 15 remaining in the 
first half. 

The Lady Indians leading scorer was 6-foot- 
4 inch Marlena Mossbarger. Mossbarger 
dropped in 19 points and pulled down 10 
rebounds for the night. 

NSU had shooting problems throughout the 
night with a disappointing 36.6 percent from

percent in the second. 
NLU, on the other hand, shot 43.7 percent 

the initial half and a red hot 58.8 percent i*

McKellar: Semester goals 

In the second weekly meeting of the 
Student Government Association at 
Northwestern for the spring semester, 
SGA president John McKellar outlined 
the final goals for the 78-79 Senate. 

"The most important thing that we as 
a student body need to do is reaffirm 
our commitment and belief in the 
program that Dr. Bienvenu has 
established for Northwestern. We must 
tell him that we appreciate his tireless 
efforts over the past year and a half to

body in efforts to improve the 
university's morale. "During the next 
eight weeks before the spring SGA

The State Board of Elementary and 
Secondary Education has granted 
Northwestern State University ap- 
proval for teacher education for five 
years, which is the maximum time 
allowable for accreditation. 

State approval of Northwestern's 
teacher education programs was an- 
nounced in Baton Rouge by Dr. 
Jacqueline C. Lewis, director of the 
Bureau of Higher Education and 
Teacher Certification. 

A committee of seven educators and 
administrators from throughout the 
state evaluated Northwestern's 
program on the basis of provisions in 
the Louisiana Standards for Ac- 
crediting Baccalaureate Degree 
Teacher Education Institutions. 

Areas included were organization 
and administration, teacher education 

faculty and other instructional per- 
sonnel, student personnel services, 
curricula, facilities for instruction and 
professional laboratory experiences. 

In recommending approval, the 
committee stated in its report to the 
state board that university faculty 
members "are dedicated toward ob- 
taining the objectives that the College 
of Education has established for its 
teacher education programs." 

Northwestern's education faculty 
was praised for "their close, 
cooperative relationship with state, 
area and local educational systems and 
other departments of the university," 
and the committee added that "the fine 
aclministration and close supervision of 
the teacher education program should 
successfully prepare graduates to be 
outstanding teachers." 

must ask himself, "What can I do to 
make Northwestern a better place?" 

McKellar posed three goals for the 
SGA to work on for the spring 
semester: the establishment of a book 
co-op, a study of recreational equip- 
ment and how it can be better used by 
the entire student body, and a frisbee 
golf course. 

"The purpose of a book co-op is not to 
make money, explained McKellar after 
the Monday evening meeting, "It is 
rather to simply break even at the same 
time that we give students the op- 
portunity to buy and sell books at more 
reasonable rates than the university 
bookstore is capable of doing. The aim 
is not to override the bookstore, but 
simply to give students an alternative." 

"We also need to make better use of 
our track and recreational facilities. A 
frisbee golf course would also be a 
recreational dIus." he added.

before or after finals because 
just for a change, we'd like to 
make our grades, too. 

It will also not be published 
on Monday, Wednesday, Thurs- 
day, Friday, Saturday, or 
Sunday. Tuesdays only, if you'd 
like to mark it on your weekly

Sunday afternoons at the 
library, and the big date on 
Saturday night.

New resolutions 

New semesters are like new 
years. Out with the old, in with 
the new., resolutions to be 
made resolutions to be broken. 

But unlike any other before, 
this semester, this year is one 
that can make (or break) 
Northwestern State University. 

Total involvement is the only 
key. It was so easy a year ago 
to look ahead to a bright future 
with our new saviour Rene 
Bienvenu. All of our goals, 
ideals, philosophies, dreams, 
hopes, aspirations were placed 
in his big capable hands and 
everybody smiled a lot. 

But Dr. Bienvenu is not Clark 
Kent, alias Superman, who was 
sent down to us by that great 
planet Board of Trustees to 
save us in the nick of time from 
everything harmful, deceitfull, 
evil, inhospitable, and 

There comes a time when 
each person must realize that 
the only way to help ourselves 
out of a hole is to start digging 

Just how deep Northwestern 
is in the hole is still being 
determined. We seem to just be 
realizing the depths of our 
troublesome years, and when 
we seemingly make no 
progress, we naturally assume 
that the blame has to be placed 
at the top. 

WRONG. The blame lies with 

I'm not trying to make 
another ditch at student apathy. 
I'm talking about each member 

of the Northwestern 
community— from 
administration to freshman 

When the faculty starts trying 
to find their common 
denominator and then begins 
working together at it, maybe 
some of their problems will 
work out without the aid of Oh ! 
Great Dr. Bienvenu. 

When the Students we do have 
begin to make a positive effort 
at recruitment maybe 
enrollment will increase. How 
do we expect NSU to better it's 
name when we laugh at it along 
with other people in the state? 

Every aspect of student life is 
lacking right now, and if we 
don't concern ourselves with 
the problem right now we may 
not have ANY to deal with in 
just a few short years. The 
School is crying for people who 
will take initiative, who will 
have the courage to lead, who 
will give of their time. 

Student Government 
positions are threatened by 
lack of involvement, 
publications are the same, 
organizations — both academic 
and social— are theratened. 
We can't ask Dr. Bienvenu to 

do it all because quite frankly, 

there are some things that he 

has no power over. 

The mam one is lack of interest. 

We as individuals call the shots 

on that one. 
It's your new year and your 

new semester. Do something 

with it.

Despite Loans to Farmers 
Carter's Popularity Wanes 

Carter isn't popular with 
his fellow farmers in 
Georgia and has tried to 
placate them with federal 
loans. No other state has 
received so much farm 

But it hasn't mollified 
the farmers. Hundreds of 
them descended on 
Carter's home town during 
the Christmas weekend. 
They were not there to 
wish the president a Merry 
Christmas. They were 
there to express their dis- 
pleasure with the Adminis- 
tration's farm policy. 

We sent two reporters, 
Tom Rosenstiel and Hal 
Bernton, to Georgia to in- 
vestigate the story. They 
found the farmers in an 
angry mood. Everyone 
else in the food business, 
they complained, is mak- 
ing money off their crops, 
but they can't keep up with 

Yet the Carter adminis- 
tration has gone all-out to 
take care of the president's 
neighbors. He has used the 
taxpayers' money to 
shower blessings upon 
Georgia's dirt farmers. 

Farmers in other areas 
have waited in vain for 
federal disaster relief, but 
not Georgia farmers. Our 
investigation of the 
records, for example, 
reveals that the Small 
Business Administration 
has distributed 25 percent 
of its disaster loans in 

This has put Georgia 
ahead of all other slates in 
obtaining SBA loans. The 
average loan for Georgia 
farmers was $46,436 - 
twice the average amount 
that farmers in lava, the 

second highest state, 

The Agriculture Depart- 
ment poured additional 
money into the state. 
Georgia got 8 percent of 
these funds, again higher 
than its fair share. In the 
president's home county, 
Sumter, 289 farmers got 
agriculture loans. The av- 
erage was $70,500 apiece. 

Footnote: In fairness, 
the president's neighbors 
were among the hardest- 
hit farmers in the country. 

Holiday Travel: Con- 
gress is now in recess, and 
the members have scat- 
tered to the four winds. On 
any given day, they can be 
found on several con- 
tinents and the islands of 
the Caribbean. 

Some of the trips are 
worthwhile. Contacts are 
made, understandings are 
reached, legislation is 
born. But many of the trips 
are nothing more than holi- 
days at the taxpayers' 

Just before the New 
Year's weekend, there was 
a scramble for one VIP 
plane which the Air Force 
makes available for con- 
gressional junkets. Certain 
members of the House 
Public Works Committee 
tried to reserve it. They 
wanted to spend the New 
Year's weekend in Dublin, 
Rome and Geneva. 

The congressmen sol- 
emnly explained that they 
wanted to inspect the "sub- 
way systems" in these 
faraway cities. They were 
informed that Dublin and 
Geneva have no subway

Cat Nip 

If you are bitten b/ a cat, are 
you entitled to collet damages 
from the cat's owner? 

The biggest obstace to such a 
claim is that the lav considers 
cats harmless until foven other- 

A baby-sitter, nipped by the 
family's tabby, tried to convince a 
court that the cat had previously 

their Air Force plane was 
requisitioned out from un- 
der them. It was pre- 
empted by Larry 
McDonald, D-Ga., who be- 
longs to the House Armed 
Services Committee. 

This is the committee 
that rules on Air Force 
requests. So the brass hats 
took the plane away from 
the Public Works Commit- 
tee and assigned it to 
McDonald. He wanted to 
take some colleagues and 
their wives on a holiday 
trip to Ireland, Norway, 
Switzerland, Egypt and 
Israel, with a stop in the 
Azores islands on the way 

Their excuse wasn't 
much better than the Pub- 
lic Works Committee had 
offered. The McDonald 
group announced they 
wanted to study "civil 
defense" systems. 

This may have caused 
them some difficulty in 
Ireland. It is a neutral 
country, with only a token 
civil defense system. 

Soviet Persecution: Re- 
ligious persecution in the 
Soviet Union is not limited 
only to Jews who want to 
emigrate to Israel. Recent- 
ly, the Russian Christian 
Pentacostal community 
has come under fire. One 
member, Victor Vasilev, 
was ordered to renounce 
God in writing. Otherwise, 
he was told, he would be 
barred from entering a 
military institute. Vasi- 
lev's Russian bosses told 
him the institute would 
rather produce five bad 
engineers than one good 
one who is a "believer." 

Defense Doublespeak:

"When I swept the floor," she 
recalled, "the cat would growl and 
snatch at the broom. When I used 
the vacuum cleaner, the cat would 
growl and run. Obviously she was 
a highly temperamental animal." 

But the court said these charac- 
teristics, rather than being danger 
signals, were well within the range 
of normal feline behavior. 

Another case arose when a cat 
entered the neighbors' back yard 
and gobbled up their pet canary. 
Here the neighbors filed a damage 
suit on the theory that the cat was 
too predatory to have been allowed 
to run loose. 

But again the court could see 

tion, the brass hats in the 
Pentagon have dispatched 
a memorandum to seven 
major defense agencies on 
the subject of housing for 
military bachelors. No one 
will be allowed to refer to 
such barracks as "bache- 
lor housing" anymore, 
says the memo. From now 
on, the document states, 
bachelor quarters will be 
known as "unaccompanied 
personnel housing." 

Chinese Gangs: In the 
past five years, gang war- 
fare among Chinese immi- 
grant youths has erupted 
in the streets of some ma- 
jor American cities. In Los 
Angeles and New York 
City, police officials have 
been unable to stop the 
fighting. Now, Canadian 
intelligence sources report 
that there has been an 
increase in young Chinese 
in Ft. Erie, St. Catherines 
and Niagara Falls. As in 
the United States, many of 
the Chinese youths are re- 
portedly gang members. 

Headlines and Foot- 
notes: Seven Haitians who 
were recently arrested in 
Puerto Rico for attempting 
to gain entry to the United 
States with phony 
passports named a female 
comrade as the supplier of 
their forged documents. 
Authorities declined to ar- 
rest her because, in their 
words, she was "ex- 
tremely pregnant."... Ac-

nothing alarming about the cat's 
conduct. The court said people 
generally accept, as part of a cat's 
"natural propensity," a tendency 
to 1) roam, and 2) kill birds. 

A third case, however, went the 
other way.

hotel maintained a cat on its 
premises even after it had bitten a 
number of visitors. Finally a

- Lady Demons 
Topple USL , 

Tuesday, January 23, 1979, CURRENT SAUCE, Page 5 


By Buddy Wood 
Current Sauce Asst. Sports Editor 

Coach Pat Nolen said before the game her 
Northwestern Lady Demons would have to 
control the boards and shut down the ex- 
plosive fast break of Southeastern's Lady 
Lions to win. 

The result: The NSU Lady Demons pulled 
off one of the seasons biggest upsets by 
defeating SLU 74-70. Nolen' s troops controlled 
the boards 38-33 and shut down the SLU fast 
break to almost nothing. 

Dianna Cary's two free throws with 23 
seconds left gave the Lady Demons a 72-70 
lead, but it was not until after an SLU missed 
shot that Marilyn Gates iced the game with 
three seconds left with a pair of free throws. 

"I can't believe it still," said an elated Pat 
Nolen as the Lady Demons took their first win 
ever over the Lady Lions in the upset. "It's 
not possible to describe how I feel right now." 

The Lady Demons placed five players in 
double figures in the contest. Gates and Linda 
Jones, who hit seven of eight shots from the 
field, each had 16 points, while Theresa Long 
had 14 and Joan Darbonne and Mary Hum- 
phrey 10 each. 

Queen Brumfield led the way for the Lady 
Lions with 21 points, while Staci Brown was 
the only other SLU player to hit in double 
figures with 14 points. 

NSU held a 39-36 halftime lead, but the 
game was nip and tuck throughout the second 
half. Mary Humphrey came off the bench to 
hit her 10 points in about an eight minute span 
to give the Lady Demons a big second half lift. 

The Lady Demons snapped a two-game 

losing streak, having lost to Northeast in 
Monroe the night before, Thursday, and 
losing earlier in the week to McNeese State 

In the Northeast game, Joan Darbonne's 25 
point effort was in vain as the Lady Demons 
dropped an 82-68 decision to the Lady Indians. 

The Lady Demons, trailing only 39-29 at 
halftime, could not overcome cold shooting 
and the inside play of Linda Andrews and 
Marlena Mossbarger, who finished with 25 
and 18 points respectively for the Lady In- 

The Lady Demons shot only 36 percent from 
the floor in the contest. 

Marilyn Gates added 10 points for NSU 
while Mary Humphrey snared 10 rebounds to 
pace the Lady Demons. 

The Lady Demons then traveled to 
Lafayette to play Southwestern La. Joan 
Darbonne fired in 31 points, her fourth 30 
point effort of the season, to lead NSU to a 74- 
63 victory over USL. 

Darbonne hit on 10 of 17 field goals and 11 of 
12 free throws as the Lady Demons took their 
second consecutive win to up their record to 6- 
8 on the season. 

Linda Jones and Marilyn Gates had 12 
points and Theresa Long has 10 for the Lady 
Demons, while Jody Pontiff had 16, Anne 
DeMahy 15 and Margy Bayard 13 led the Lady 
Cajuns, now 4-8 on the year. 

The Lady Demons led 36-29 at halftime and 
used 49 percent field goal accuracy and 85 
percent free throw shooting to offset a 47-35 
rebound taken by the Lady Cajuns. USL, 
throttled by a quick Lady Demon defense, 
shot only 31 percent from the floor.

into Monday night's contest against Southwestern La. (NSU

1 978 Features Outstanding Performances 

A series of outstanding individual per- 
formances and a few noteworthy team ac- 
complishments highlighted the Northwestern 
State University's athletic season during the 
1978 calendar year. 

The efforts of Joe Delaney in football, 
Lester Elie in men's basketball, Ricardo 
Acuna in men's tennis, Terry Ruddell in 
baseball, Billy Green in cross country and 
Lisa Brewer in women's basketball told the 
biggest stories of the "Year of the Demon." 

Delaney, a sophomore tailback from 
Haughton, brought national notice to the NSU 
football squad when he erupted 299 yards 
rushing and four touchdowns against Nicholls 
State during NSU's 28-18 victory over the 
Colonels. Delaney, possessor of 9.4 speed, 
easily broke both the school and state records 
for single game rushing and was the recipient 
of one national weekly honor for his effort. 

Delaney' s 935 yard rushing to lead the team 

helped NSU compile a 5-6 record (4-1 at 
home) under head coach A.L. Williams, but it 
was senior wide receiver Mike Almond who 
did most of the record-setting when he hauled 
in 27 catches for 483 yards. Those helped give 
him the Demon records for most receptions 
and most yardage receiving in a career. 

Elie, a 6-foot-6 senior from Cloutierville, 
averaged 18.8 points in his final campaign and 
joined with teammate Lester Davis to 
become two of only 13 players in NSU history 
to reach the 1,000 point career mark, the first 
time two players had done it in a single 
season. NSU compiled a 12-15 mark during 
the season under head coach Tynes 

All five starters for the Demons averaged in 
double figures, with sophomore Frederick 
Piper averaging 12.3 points and 12.3 
rebounds, good enough to rank 12th in the 
nation among all major colleges. Jerry Lewis

(11.6) and Jim Hoops (10.1) along with Davis 
(10.4) also reached double digits, and Davis, a 
5-foot-9 hometown product, became the new 
all-time NSU career assist leader during the 

Acuna, a junior from Santiago, Chile, 
perhaps participated on a national scale more 
than any other Demon during the year when 
he competed in the main draw of the U.S. 
Open Tennis Championships. Acuna, who also 
played on the American Express Tour and 
won the Louisiana Open title, compiled a 24-5 
mark to help lead the Demon netters to a 16-2 
overall record, with NSU losing only to 
Oklahoma State and Wichita State on the 

The Demon tennis squad, which was 10-0 at 
home, also won the prestigious Big Gold 
Tournament in Hattiesburg, Miss., and took 
the consolation title in the Oral Roberts 
Spring Classic. Junior Juan Lopez had the 

best singles record on the squad with a 23-4 
mark, while Acuna and senior Gregg Man- 
ning put together a 21-6 mark in No. 1 doubles. 
The sixth straight winning record helped NSU 
continue a streak of success under coach 
Johnnie Emmons that now shows an overall 
mark of 113-15 (88.4 percent) over the past six 

Ruddell, a senior from Longview, Tex., put 
together a 9-2 record on the mound to lead the 
Demon baseball team to its first winning 
season in four years with a 31-29 final record. 
Perhaps the most amazing thing about the 
season, though, was the fact that the Demons 
scheduled 60 games and played all 60 without 
even a rainout during the season for coach 
Herbie Smith. 

Scott Stagner. added a 7-4 mound record, 
and Ted Reeves' .321 average led the team in 
that department. However, senior Curtis 
Ardoin finished a stellar career by leading the 
team in bats, runs.hits, doubles, triples, total 
bases and stolen bases. Tommy Dorsey also 
hit 311 and brother Curtis Dorsey led the club 
in the home runs with 11 and RBI with 36. 

Green, only a sophomore from Marshall, 
Tex., was NSU's individual top finisher in all 
but one cross country meet during the season 
and won three individual titles to lead the 
Demon harriers of coach Jerry dyes to three 
meet titles during the year. Green was only 
out of the top four finishers once during the 
entire season. 

His efforts and those of freshman Jeff 
Baker helped lead NSU to a win in its only 
home meet of the year, when the Demons beat 
Northeast Louisiana, Stephen f. F. Austin, 
and Centenary in the annual NSU Invitational 

Meet. Green and Baker won co- 
championships in the event. 

Brewer, a junior from DeRidder, com- 
pleted the greatest career ever assembled by 
a Lady Demon basketball player when she 
averaged 25.2 points per outing to lead the 
lady Demons to a 13-13 overall record. 

The 5-foot-6 sharpshooter finished her three 
year career with 1,906 points and reigns as the 
all-time leading large college scorer in state's : 
women's history. 

Junior Becky Guidry chipped in with 16.6 
points per outing, and the "Lisa and Becky j! 
Show" provided NSU's top two scorers in 17 
games and helped to lead the Lady Demons to ; r, 
a fourth place finish in the state and a !; 
regional playoff berth for the fourth straight : 
year. They also set 12 new school records ■■■ 
under Coach Charlotte Corley during the;: 
campaign, and freshman Joan Darbonne was ;= 
the other Lady Demon in double figures with 
a 10.4 average. 

A four-man delegation helped NSU's track : ; 
and field squad of coach Jerry Dyes to three 
meet titles and three new school records, jjj 
Sophomore Tommy Swacker of Crowley was 
the team's leading scorer with 112 three-:: 
fourths points during the year, including one 
of the top individual marks with a 46.65 : 
clocking in the 400 meter dash.

Demons Drop Two 
to McNeese, NLU 

By Doug Ireland 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

MONROE— It's "good news, bad news time" for Coach 
Tynes Hildebrand and his Northwestern Demon basketball 
team. The good news is that the Demons have seen the last of 
Northeast La's All American Calvin Natt. The bad news is 
that Calvin has a little brother...and it just so happened that 
the two were NLU's leading scorers in last Thursday night's 
73-59 victory over NSU here in Ewing Coliseum. 

Calvin, the 6-5 senior called "Super Natt," popped in 25 
points and snared ten rebounds to pace retiring Coach Lenny 
Fant's Indians. His "little" brother Kenny, a 6-4 sophomore, 
added 13 points in just 14 minutes of playing time to help seal 
the Demons' fate. 

If the two Natts weren't enough to bug Northwestern, big 
Eugene Robinson was. The powerful 6-9 postman dropped in 
12 points and grabbed a game high 14 caroms and made it 
tough sledding inside for the Demons. 

The Demons never led in the contest, pulling within one 
point at 10-9 just over six minutes into the contest and closing 
the gap to four 'S9-35) at 12:27 of the final half on a 15 footer 
by Jerry Lewis. NLU had held a 39-29 halftime edge. 

Northwestern only had two men in double figures. Andre 
Bailey had 12 and Lewis chipped in with ten to lead the 
Demons. Lewis was NSU's board leader with five. The loss 
left the Demons at 3-10 for the season while the streaking 
Indians, who have won their last seven in a row, are 10-4. 

It was a tough week for the Demons, since the McNeese 
Cowboys handed them a 76-66 loss last Monday in Prather 
Coliseum. The hot-ehooting Cowpokes broke open a tight 
game— it was 28-27 McNeese at the intermission— with a 60 

per cent shooting effort in the second half. 

NSU was also hurt by fouls, as three Demon starters fouled 
out late in the game. It was then that the Cowboys began to 
ride off into the sunset, stretching what had been a three 
point edge into a ten point bulge after Bailey, Guy Charles 
and Jim Hoops all departed with five fouls. 

Jerry Lewis hit 19 and Hoops pitched in 16 for the Demons. 
Mike Brey had ten points and handed out 11 assists, while 6-10 
David Lawrence led the visitors with 20 points. Ray Baggett 
and Chris Faggi tossed in 14 apiece, and Manuel Dugas had 
11 for the 'Pokes. 

After falling behind by eight early in the second half, 
Northwestern raced back to take the lead 4645 with 9:44 left 
on a Hoops follow shot inside. But Faggi then dropped in two 
freebies after Bailey committed his fourth personal 21 
seconds later to push McNeese out front. 

Lawrence then took charge, pouring in seven straight 
points and dominating the inside play while the Demons ran 
into their foul trouble. After Lawrence hit both ends of a one- 
and-one with 6 : 15 showing to make it 53-48 , 15 of the 'Pokes 
last 23 points came from the free throw line. 

In that stretch, McNeese was 15 of 21 from the line, and that 
was enough to put the game away for the Cowboys. The 
visitors hit 72.7 per cent of their freebies and NSU hit at a 70.6 
rate, but McNeese toed the line 33 times and swished 24 
compared to 12 out of 17 made by the Demons from the 
charity stripe. 

Northwestern outrebounded the Cowpokes 31-30 paced by 
Robert Lively's eight caroms. Faggi also had eight for 
McNeese to tie Lively for game honors in that department. 

Brey Gives Demons Big Assist 

Mike Brey is shooting less 
but enjoying it more these 

Northwestern State 
University's playmaking 
guard only took a total of 11 
shots in the Demons' three 
victories t his season. He 
didn't shoot at all when the 
NSU squad went against 
Centenary College. 

But the Demons won all 
three games after an eight- 
game losing streak, and that 
makes the six-footer from 
Rockville, Md., happy enough. 

"I know that I don't have to 
score a lot of points in order 
for us to be successful," Brey 

said after the Demons had 
taken an 80-79 win over 
Centenary. "We have people 
to score for us, I do everything 
else I can offensively and 
defensively to help us win." 

It's not the fact that Brey 
has stopped shooting the ball 
that has put NSU into the 
winning streak. More likely, 
it's the fact that the former 
DeMatha High School star has 
been setting his teammates up 
for baskets. 

In those three games, Brey 
had 12 assists, in NSU's 81-75 
win over Nicholls State, seven 
assists in a 63-61 win over 
Southeastern La. and a 

season-high 13 assists in the 
Centenary victory. 

His last assist against 
Centenary was perhaps the 
biggest of all three games, 
when he lobbed a pass to 
postman Robert Lively under 
the basket for an easy layup 
with 15 seconds left that gave 
NSU its win over the Gen- 

"Mike's one of the best 
guards we've ever had at 
getting the ball to the open 
man", said NSU head coach 
Tynes Hildebrand. "last year 
he made some freshman 
mistakes, but he has improved 
to the point that I don't worry 

when he's in control of the 
basketball, even in close 

A good example of that 
came in the win over 
Southeastern, when Brey ran 
NSU's four-corner offense to 
perfection during the game's 
final three minutes. 

This year, his ball-handling 
ability has helped him 
average 7.1 points per outing 
along with a 6.5 scoring 
average. In addition, he's 
been on the court practically 
every minute of evey NSU

Super Bowl X 

Pittsburgh's exciting vic- 
tory over Dallas 35-31 did live 
up to expectations as the most 
exciting Super Bowl ever. Not 
only was the game filled with 
excitement throughout, but 
numerous records were set in 
the heat of battle. 

The Pittsburgh Steelers 
became the first team in 
history to win three Super 
Bowl titles, keeping the Dallas 
Cowboys from accomplishing 
the same feat. 

Dallas became the first 
team to appear in five Super 
Bowls, losing 16-13 to 
Baltimore in 1971, winning 24-3 
over Miami in 1972 losing to 
Pittsburgh in 1975 by 21-17 , 
winning 27-10 over Denver in 
1978, and , of course, losing to 

the Steelers this year. Min- 
nesota is the only other team 
to have appeared in four Super 

Franco Harris' 66 yards on 
20 carries enabled him to 
become the leading ground 
gainer in Super Bowl history, 
eclipsing the mark of Larry 
Csonka, then with the Miami 

Roger Staubach's 200-plus 
yard passing effort in Sun- 
day's loss to Pittsburgh 
moved him into the lead in 
career passing yards in Super 
Bowl play. 

Terry Bradshaw's 318 yards 
passing performance in this 
year's classic not only was a 
Super Bowl record but also a 

Day of Record^P 


personal high for the Steeler 

The 66 points combined by 
both teams was far and bey- 
ond a record. The second 
highest point total combined 
by both teams was in the 1968 
game, won by Green Bay 33-14 
over Oakland. 

Several players, including 
Roger Staubach, Jethro Pugh, 
D. D. Lewis, Larry Cole, and 
Rayfield Wright tied Marv 
Fleming's record of five Super 
Bowl appearances, but all 
have appeared with the same 
team, the Dallas Cowboys, 
another record. Fleming 
indicentally appeared with 
Green Bay in '67 and '68 and 
with Miami in '72-74. 

Another record unnoticed 
everyone is that the Pitt: 
burgh Steelers became thi 
first team to win by the po 
spread established by thi NATCHI1 
oddsmakers. The SteelersMitzer Pi 
now 3-0 in Super Bowl play£ag e and S(

over Baltimore. Baltimore the thr<

What students need 




following editorial Is not 
meant to be taken seriously in 
any way. Any person who 
attempts to do so will find that 
he lacks the ability to 
recognize sarcasm.) 

After spending almost four 
years as a Northwestern 
student I feel that I am a prime 
candidate for being an 
authority on what is lacking in 
Natchitoches for accomodating 
the NSU student body. 
Although historical 
Natchitoches is very charming 
and lovable, there are just a 
few things that could be added 
to make it THE perfect college 
towa After extensive research 
I have found the following to be 
the most repeated requests of 
our campus population: 

1) We need more fast food 
restaurants. Many students ha- 
ve been hit hard with a lack of 
variety in places to eat. Most 
agree that there should be 
more concentration of these 
establishmetns on Highway One 
South, and they especially 
request more pizza, 
hamburger, and chicken 

2) . There are too many movie 
theatres. For the number of 
students and townspeople that 
make up Natchitoches there 
seems to be a surplus of theatre 
selection and someone, 
somewhere, is probably losing 
a lot of money because of the 
overabundance of theatre 
attraction. We suggest 
replacing them with skating 
rinks or other such necessities. 

3) There is an extreme 
problem with too few red lights 
on College Avenue. It is difficult 
to talk to the people in the car 
behind you when you only get to 

stop three times within 100 
yards. Maybe the situation 
could be altered by placing red 
lights at 10 yard intervals rather 
than 30. This would also 
provide necessary excuses for 
being late to class. 

4) We need more drive-in 
liquor stores. Just making the 
rounds to each one by cruising 
does not take long enough to 
reach full consumer effect, and 
more liquor stores at more 
random locations would serve 
the students nicely. 

5) We feel that the city cheats 
itself by charging such nominal 
fees for utilities. Higher 
electric bills could help the city 
expand, and provide insurance 
against the possibility of 
bankruptcy, a problem many 
American cities face. 

6) The streets in 
Natchitoches, particularly on 
NSU's side of town are much 
too wide. This is a waste of 
land, for residents in this area 
can double park without having 
to worry about the traffic flow. 
(Second Street is a prime 
example of this) We suggest 
that this is encouragement to 
citizens to break traffic laws 
and that it should be dealt with 

7) We need more police 
protection against traffic 
violators. There just never is an 
officer around when you are 
speeding around town. This 
makes the temptation of indul- 
ge gence difficult to cast away. 

We realize that some of these 
changes are minor, but they 
appear important in our vast 
experiences of learning. We 
hope that Natchitoches 
residents will accept these 
suggestions in the spirit in 
which they are offered. 

Student wishes to 
see American Flag 

Dear Editor 

Maybe in this day and time I 
am wrong for feeling the way I 
do, or maybe some may think 
the gain is not worth the effort; 
but I, myself, feel ashamed 
because it took a flag draped 
over a soldier's coffin to jog my 
patriotic memory. At the risk 
of being provocative, it seems 
to me that the Flag of the 
United States of America 
should be raised and lowered on 
this university once again. 

I do realize that the Civil 
Service workers (University 
Police) have many important 
functions such as protecting 
students from vicious outlaws, 
and that this university could 
not get along without them. But 

maybe the taxpayer's money 
would be well spent in the effort 
it takes to raise and lower our 
flag. (Approximately 15 
minutes to raise, 15 minutes to 
lower, and two people to handle 
the job.) 

I feel bad because I even have 
to write this. You would think 
that someone of authority 
would have recognized the 
situation and solved it 
themselves. But quite 
apparently it is not being 
noticed and consequently not 
being corrected. It would be a 
shame for a whole school year 
to go by and not once the United 
States Flag be flown over this

Brzezinski's Behavior 
Attracting Objections 

State Department strateg- 
ists privately believe that 
President Carter is taking 
the nation on a roller- 
coaster ride. They com- 
plain that his foreign pol- 
icy is erratic and unpre- 
dictable. And they blame 
his genial national security 
adviser, Zbigniew Brzezin- 

Those who know Brzezin- 
ski agree that he is articu- 
late and possesses a talent 
for reducing complex for- 
eign policy issues into 
catchy phrases. He has a 
disarming, sandy-haired, 
blue-eyed appeal. But his 
critics say that he also has 
a superficial glibness. 
They describe him as com- 
bative and mercurial, with 
a tendency to shoot from 
the hip. 

One of his detractors 
brought us the tape record- 
ing of an off-the-record 
briefing he gave to top 
Jewish leaders. After lis- 
tening to it, we have to 
agree with one of the lead- 
ers who characterized 
Brzezinski as "brutal, rude 
and offensive." Over and 
over again, he drove home 
the point that U.S. and 
Israeli national interests 
don't coincide. Finally, he 
told the Jewish leaders 
that he no longer felt com- 
pelled to listen to their 
views, that he had heard 
their arguments and had 
rejected them. 

In the backrooms of the 
State Department, Brzez- 
inski is also regarded as 
incurably anti-Soviet. One 
source went so far as to 
call him a "cold warrior." 
Last year, he launched a 
hardline attack against the 
Soviet Union. He accused 

them on national television 
of engaging in a "short- 
sighted attempt to exploit 
global differences." 

This was too much for 
Secretary of State Cyrus 
Vance. He quietly in- 
formed President Carter 
that Brzezinski's strident, 
anti-Soviet remarks were 
hampering State Depart- 
ment diplomacy. For 
awhile, Carter kept a muz- 
zle on Brzezinski. 

But the flamboyant 
Brzezinski is now back in 
the catbird's seat. He 
pulled the strings that re- 
sulted in recognition of 
mainland China. Typical- 
ly, the joint Chinese-Amer- 
ican communique used the 
word "hegemony." In the 
communist lexicon, this is 
a trigger word that is 
deeply offensive to the 

Brzezinski also helped to 
engineer the four-power 
summit conference that 
was recently held on the 
island of Guadeloupe. He 
showed up with several of 
his aides. But the secre- 
tary of state was nowhere 
around. As one source 
complained to us: "Not a 
single State Department 
representative was invited 
to attend." 

Long Wait: The General 
Accounting Office has 
completed a study on how 
long it takes the Veterans 
Administration to process 
a claim. The report is 
restricted, but we have

According to the govern- 
ment auditors, veterans or 
their survivors have to 
wait an average of 147 days 
from the time their claim 
is filed until the Veterans 
Administration decides 

whether they are entitled 
to any money. Then it

spend most of the time 
waiting for other bureau- 
crats to fill out forms. The 
medical reports from vet- 
erans hospitals, for exam- 
ple, are pathetically slow 
in coming in. Most of the 
processing is done manual- 
ly. What is the solution? 
The Veterans Administra- 
tion says it would like to 
hire more bureaucrats and 
install an expensive com- 
puter system. 

Caffeine Scare: Some 
medical experts have 
asked the federal govern- 
ment to declare that 
caffeine can be hazardous 
to your health. The doctors 
want the Food and Drug 
Administration to force 
manufacturers to attach 
labels to their products 
telling how much caffeine 
is in their coffee. 

Last year, we reported 
that confidential studies 
had linked caffeine inges- 
tion with birth defects. 
Now, a Pennsylvania psy- 
chiatrist has joined the 
chorus. He claims he is 
treating an increasing 
number of patients who 
are suffering from 
"caffeine overdose." They 
are plagued, he says, with 
insomnia, shakes and 
other nervous disorders. 

The caffeine content in 
coffee, tea, cola drinks and 
dozens of over-the-counter 
drugs, the doctor told us, 

ought to appear on labels 
so consumers can tell how 
much of the substance they 
are ingesting. 

Hard Times: That 
venerable institution, the 
Girl Scouts of the U.S.A., is 
having financial problems. 
The organization is pla- 
gued by declining enroll- 
ment and revenues. To 
offset the hardships, the 
Girl Scouts have sold 
Camp Rockwood, a 92-acre 
facility on the banks of the 
Potomac River in Mary- 
land. Some officials op- 
posed the sale, but others 
told us the reported $20,000 
per acre received for the 
land will help them keep 
their green berets above 

Expensive Communica- 
tions: The president's hot- 
line messages to Moscow 
used to travel "beneath the 
ocean via trans- Atlantic 
cable. But last year, the 
hot line was renovated and 
now the messages are 
beamed to Russia by satel- 
lite. U.S. officials won't 
say how much the Soviets 
spent on the project, but 
the United States' share of 
the tab came to $15 million.

notes: During the month of

The Senate of the Student 
Government Association of 
Northwestern State 
University met on Monday, 
Jan. 22, 1979 at 6 : 30 p.m. in the 
SGA Conference Room. 
Sanders called the meeting to 
order. Williams led the group 
in prayer followed by the 
Pledge of allegiance by 
Sanders. The minutes were 
omitted. Absent were 
Alexander, Crowell, Foster, 
D. McKellar, McClinton, and 

McKellar gave an overview 
of last semester's accomplish- 

ments. Some of the ac- 
complishments were the NSU- 
SGA Sign, the Demon Mascot, 
and getting the Library 
Carrels for stude ts to study to 
name a few. McKellar stated 
"We have organized SGA 
without revising a constitution 
and we have shown leadership 
with our responsibilities as the 
SGA Senate." McKellar 
further stated, "During the 
next 8 weeks of office there 
should be among the Senate a 
commitment of devotion and 
dedication to the SGA and 
wants these last weeks to be 

an extreme period of student 
involvment. McKellar told the 
Senate he will be proposing a 
broad set of proposals. These 
will include finding a way to 
decrease book prices in the 
Bookstore, ce creating a 
Director of Student life, and a 
Student Flights Adniinistrator. 
"As students we affirm our 
committment and dedication 
that Dr. Bienvenu has 
provided for NSU and we as 
the SGA Senate have to 
continue to back him in 
whatever way we can," stated 

Sanders introduced Dr. 
Bienvenu to the Senate. Dr. 
Bienvenu thanked the Senate 
for its support and told Senate 
that he is dedicated to a strong 
institution and that an in- 
stitution can only achieve with 
its students. He told Senate 
that there is no doubt that the 
SGA is basically behind the 
concept of putting academics 
first at Northwestern. Dr. 
Bienvenu asked the SGA 
Senate to Continue to come to 
him whenever problems arise.

Senate the Spring Election.

Beat USL, Lose to SLU 

Lody Demons Split 

By Buddy Wood 
Current Sauce Ass't. Sports Editor 

The Northwestern Lady Demons overcame a sluggish first 
half and used the combined 29 point effort of Marilyn Gates 
and Joan Darbonne in the second half to take a 69-59 victory 
over the USL Lady Cajuns last Monday night in Prather 
Coliseum. The Lady Demons had defeated the Lady Cajuns 
only two days earlier in Lafayette 74-63. 

Joan Darbonne led the Lady Demons with 25 points, while 
Marilyn Gates added 18 markers, 15 of which came after 

The Lady Demons were noticeably tired, having played 
their seventh game in thirteen days. 

USL led most of the first half and at one time held a seven 
point lead, but the Lady Demons were able to cut the defecit 
to 39-27 at halftime. 

Cold shooting by NSU was the main reason the much 
shorter Lady Cajuns took the halftime lead. The Lady 
Demons shot a cool 30 percent in the first half while the Lady 
Cajuns hit 44 percent of their attempts. 

But the overall size advantage of the Lady Demons 
prevailed in the second half as they controlled both the 
offensive and defensive boards. Gates scored repeatedly 
inside on offensive rebounds and Darbonne used her 
quickness to funnel home 14 second half tallies. 

Rachel Spencer and Mary Humphrey came off the bench to 
score six points each when the Lady Demons were struggling 
to hold a four-point lead. The good inside work by the Lady 
Demons and 14 second half fouls by USL proved to be the 
difference over the scrappy Lady Cajuns. 

The Lady Demons held a 48-36 edge in rebounding, with 
Gates hauling in 12 caroms and Theresa Long 10, while Anne 
deMahy has nine rebounds for USL. 

Jody Pontiff scored 20 points for the Lady Cajuns and was 
the only double digit scorer for USL. 

The Lady Demons then traveled to Hammond two nights 
later to take on powerful Southeastern La., whom they had 
upset 74-70 only five days before. 

The result was different this time, though, as the Lady 
Lions scored on their first 19 offensive possessions to coast to 
a 100-63 win over the Lady Demons. 

SLU held a whopping 61-24 halftime lead behind 18 points 
each by Queen Brumfield and Staci Brown and 14 more from 
Claudia Warren. The Lady Lions shot a blazing 68 percent in 
the first half while the Lady Demons shot a paltry 22.5 

The Lady Lions held a big rebounding advantage, winning 
the battle of the boards 56-38. They also held the Lady 
Demons to a season low six assists, while piling up 23 assists 
on their side of the ledger. 

Brown finished the night with 27 points and 14 rebounds, 
Brumfield with 22 points and 16 rebounds and Warren with 20 
pouits. Cindy Williams was the other double digit scorer for 
SLU with 14 points. 

Joan Darbonne again led the Lady Demons with 14 points, 
while Marilyn Gates had 12 and Theresa Long 10. 

The next game for the Lady Demons is at Grambling 
tomorrow night against the Tigerrettes, who already hold a 
win over NSU this season.

The 28-year-old Alexander 
has served as defensive coor- 
dinator at Richfield High 
School in Waco for the past 
three seasons. His defensive 
efforts helped Richfield 

compile a 7-2-1 record in 1978, 
good enough for a second- 
place finish in District 15- 
AAAA behind Temple, the top- 
ranked team in Texas for most 
of the season. 

Richfield had seasons of 6-4 
in 1976 and 5-5 in 1977 in one of 
the strongest AAAA leagues in 
the state. Prior to Alexander's 
arrival, the club had only won 
three games in three seasons. 

Prior to his stint at Rich- 
field, Alexander had served as 
defensive coordinator at Fan- 
Park, where he helped the 
Indians to two District 1- 
AAAA championships and to a 
pair of 13-2 and 10-2 seasons. 

The 1974 Fair Park squad 
advanced all the way to the 
state finals, and Alexander's 

squad was the top defensive 
unit in the state. That unit was 
unscored on in five state 
playoff games until the second 
half to the finals, and allowed 
an average of only 22 yards 
rushing and 86 total yards per 

A total of seven of those 
players were named to the All- 
District team and three to the 
All-State team, and the foll- 
owing year all 11 defensive 
starters were named either 
first or second-team All- 
District after their second 
straight league crown.

letterman in football at La. 
Tech from 1966-69 and was 
twice an All-Gulf States 
Conference selection at 


defensive back and Tech's ■■•} 
Most Valuable Defensive 
Player. In his senior year In-£ 
1969, he was also named to the-; 
Kodak Little All-America!! 
team and was the Shreveport 
area's Football Athlete of the 
Year. % 

A graduate of WoodlawT; 
High School in Shreveport in 
1966, Alexander was a two- 
year letterman and an all-city 
defensive back while also 
earning a track letter. He 
earned his bachelors' degree 
from Tech in 1970 and his 
masters' degree in 1974. 

Alexander is married to the 
former Debi Davidson, and 
they are the parents of three 
children, Heather, 7, Ronnie, "

tramurals. Thirty-five percent 
of the full time male 
enrollment (510 male 
students) and twenty-one 
percent (447 female students)

2025 points. 

The Hot Dogs accumulated 
1650 points in winning the 
women's independent division 
while Sigma Kappa were 
victors in the sorority division, 
1967.5 points. 

At the conclusion of the 
intramural season the point 
total for each team from the 
fall and spring semesters will 
determine the overall 
champions in the mens and 
women divisions.

2 -of -3 
On Week 

By Doug Ireland 
Current Sauce Sports Editor 

Northwest ern's Demons, looking for their first three-win 
week of the 1978-79 basketball season, stumbled over the 
hump of the Fightln' Camels of Campbell College Saturday 
night in Releigh, N.C. The Camels handed the Demons a 67-64 
defeat and ended a two-game NSU winning streak. 

The loss dropped Northwestern to M2 for the season. 
Earlier in the week, the Demons had beaten Hardin- 
Simmons 60-51 in Prather Coliseum and had topped Stephen 
F. Austin on the road by a narrow 63-60 count. 

Campbell never trailed in the intersectional contest, 
breaking a 60-60 deadlock late in the game to stymie a late 
Demon rally. Fred Whitfield scored the final seven points for 
the Camels to key the Campbell win. 

Whitfield hit two free throws with 3: 10 left to give Campb- 
ell, now 6-10, a 62-60 lead, and he followed that with a jumper 
with 2:14 showing to give the Camels a 64-60 edge. After a 
basket by Demon Guy Charles had made it a two-point game 
again, Whitfield drove inside and converted a three-point 
play for the margin of victory with only one minute left. 

Whitfield had 14 points one of four Campbell players in 
double figures. John Heckstall had 17, Dan-ell Maudlin 
chipped in with 16 and Keys Benston scored 11 for the 

For the Demons, Charles hit for 20 points, Jerry Lewis 
tallied 12, and Andre Bailey had 10. Charles was eightof-11 
from the floor, four-for-f ive from the free throw line, and also 
led NSU in rebounds with eight. 

"We didn't play well at all offensively," said Demon head 
coach Tynes Hildebrand afterwards. "We weren't getting 
our good shots, and when we got them we missed a lot of 
them, especially in the second half." 

The Demons didn't shoot well from the field (27 of 69, a 39.1 
percentage) but hit ten of 11 from the line. Campbell 
connected on 44 percent of its shots (22 of 50) but the key 
numbers in the contest were the 23 for 28 free throws dropped 
in by the Camels. 

Things were a little bit brighter for NSU last Wednesday in 
Nacogdoches, Tex. when the Demons followed the efforts of 
guards Mike Brey and Jerry Lewis to a hard-fought 63-60 win 
over the Lumberjacks. It was the first Northwestern win in 
Nacogdoches since 1966. 

The Demons, who led virtually the entire contest before the 
scrappy 'Jacks rallied in the closing minutes, had to rely on 
the last-second heroics of Brey and Lewis to pull out the 

After SFA had used a tenacious full-court press to come 
back from an 11-point defecit and jump into a 60-59 lead with 
just 17 seconds left, Lewis fired in a 30-footer with only five 
ticks remaining to push NSU back out front. The Texans then 
called time out— but instead were whistled for a technical 
when it was discovered the time out was SFA's sixth one of 
the half. 

Brey then capped an outstanding performance when he 
was fouled on the inbound pass after the technical shot had 
been missed by the Demons. The 6-0 ball-handling wizard 
sank both ends of his 1-1 to sew up the victory for NSU. 

Brey hit 22 points, a new career-high for the sophomore 
from Rockville, Md., and Lewis added 20. Jim Hoops had 11, 
while Karl Godine tallied 26 for the Lumberjacks. 

The Demons started the week with a home win over 
Hardin-Simmons University last Monday. Lewis gunned in 14 
to lead a balanced NSU effort in the 60-51 victory. Brey 
chipped in with 12 and Guy Charles had ten for the winners. 

Mike Dabney ripped in 20 for HSU, but was the only 
Cowboy in double figures. NSU outrebounded the visitors 38- 
29 with Andre Bailey grabbing eight to pace the Demon 

The Many moods of Northwestern State University head coach Tynes 
Hildebrand are shown during the Demons' 60-51 win over Hardin- 
Simmons Monday night in Prather Coliseum. Above, Hildebrand 
exhorts his team during a time out, but apparently he can't believe 
what's happening in the above right picture. Below, he questions the 
judgment of one of the game officials. It was all worth it, though, as the 
Demons took both of last week's contests. ( Sepulvado photos.) 

To use a phrase that was 
popular a few years ago, 
"you've come a long way, 
baby". This best describes the 
progress of college basketball 
over the past few years. 

The balance of power in 
inter-collegiate basketball has 
been awesome the last five 
years. Five different teams 
have won the national 
championship over this 
period, with no team breezing 
to the title as one particular 
team did for several years in 

That one particular team 
was UCLA, coached by the 
incomparable "Wizard of 
Westwood", John Wooden. 
Wooden' s Bruin teams won 
national titles successively 
from 1964-73, excluding 1966 
when Texas Western (now the 
University of Texas at El 
Paso) interrupted the streak. 
The Bruins then added 
another title in 1975, thus 
giving the retiring Coach 
Wooden the best possible 
finish of a spectacular 
coaching career. 

All told, UCLA has won 10 
national championships and 
seven in succession from 1968- 
73. Both are records, and both 
will probably never be 

That's where the balance of 
power takes over. North 
Carolina State ended that 
reign of UCLA by winning the 
'74 crown, even though the 

fay Buddy Wood 


Bruins came back to win the 
following year. Bobby 
Knight's Indiana Hossiers won 
in '76, Al McGuire was given a 
retirement present in '77 by 
his Marquette Warriors, and 
kentucky's Wildcats surprised 
no one by winning last year. 

Lets look at the reasons why 
there is a more balancced 
scene. First, NCAA Division I 
schools are limited to the 
number of players they can on 
scholarships. Schools can no 
longer stockpile the better 
players as they did in years 
past. As a result, the superior 
talent is being distributed over 
a wider area of colleges and 

Another major reason is out 
of state recruiting. College 
coaches are looking more 
extensively for the better 
athletes. Take, for example, 
our own Northwestern State 
University. Our out of state 
players include Jim Hoops and 
Mike Hoops of Deshler, Ohio; 
Mike Brey of Rockville, Md. ; 
Mike Fyler of Scotts City, 
Kansas; and Guy Charles of 
Port Allen, Texas. All were 
highly recruited in their 
respective states. 

Significant emphasis has 
also been placed on the 
promising high school stars. 
The good high school coaches 
spend more time than usual 
developing the players who 
show superior ability. This in 
turn reflects the attention 
placed on the individual 
players by the college coach. 

Another reason for having 
more quality players year 
after is attributed to the fact 
that many of the best and 
promising young players are 
often held back in junior high 
school. This controversial 
practice allows for an extra 
year of growth and 
development. Though this is 
an effective method of bet- 
tering a person's chances for a 
college career and a way to 
increase his athletic skills, I. 
highly disagree with it. I feel 
then that too much emphasis 
is being placed on the person 
as an athlete rather than the 
person as a student.

HOUSTON— Northwestern State University's Ricardo 
Acuna, a last-minute replacement for second-seeded Kevin 
Curren of Texas, took runner-up honors in the prestigious 
Prince National Intercollogiate Indoor Singles 
Championships here over the weekend. 

Acuna, a senior from Santiago, Chile, lost a hard-fought 7-

Four Demon Standouts 
Make All-La. Team 

By Dan McDonald 

NATCHITOCHES— LSU standouts Charles 
Alexander and John Adams and Northeast 
Louisiana head coach John David Crow 
captured the top honors on the 1978 All- 
Louisiana Collegiate Football Team an- 
nounced today by the Louisiana Sports 
Writers Association. 

A panel of 33 sports writers, broadcasters 
and sports information directors from across 
the state tabbed Alexander, the Tigers' 
record-shattering tailback,and Adams, LSU's 
stalwart defensive end, as the Offensive and 
Defensive Players of the Year respectively in 
the balloting. 

Crow, who led NSU's Indians from two 
straight 2-9 records to a 6-4-1 mark for their 
first winning season since 1970, was an 
overwhelming choice as the state's Coach of 
the Year. 

The other individual honor went to Mc- 
Neese State's Don Stump, who was named 
Freshman of the Year after the frosh kicked 
led the Southland Conference in kick scoring 
and was second in punting. 

LSU, Northwestern La. and Southwestern 
La. led the selections with four players each 
on the dream unit, while La. Tech had three 
representatives on the team. Northeast 
Louisiana, McNeese State, and Grambling 
and Tulane each had two picks and 
Southeastern La. and Nicholls State one 
representative each on the squad. 

Joining Alexander on the offensive unit 
were wide receivers John Floyd of Northeast 
and Mike Almond of Northwestern, while 
Louis Landry of McNeese State was the tight 
end. The offensive line consisted of LSU's 
Robert Dugas and Petey Perot of Nor- 
thwestern at tackles and Grambling's 
Thomas Thompson and Nicholls State 's Fred 

Roth at the guards. 

Tulane's center-quarterback combination 
of Dee Methvin and Roch Hontas and running 
back Joe Delaney of Northwestern rounded 
out the offensive unit. 

Tech and USL dominated the defensive 
squad with three selections each, with nose 
guard Ardis McCann, tackle Ronnie Paggett 
and linebacker Jimmy Blackshire 
representing the Bulldogs and end Ken 
Chanier, linebacker Frank Bartley and 
defensive back Ron Irving representing the 
Ragin's Cajuns. 

Other members of the defensive unit along 
with Adams included tackle Willie 
Washington of Northwestern and defensive 
backs Chris Williams of LSU, Roy Binion of 
Northeast and Charles Johnson of Grambling. 

Southeastern's James Magruder and 
Southwestern's John Roveto grabbed the 
specialist spots at punter and kicker 

Alexander, a 6-foot-l, 21 4-po under from 
Galveston, Tex. was one of three unanimous 
picks on the offensive unit and was also a 
unanimous pick as Offensive Player of the 
Year. The Ail-American rushed for over 4,000 
yards in his career and ranks among the 
NCAA's all-time top ten rushers, along with 
going for over 1,000 yards during the season 
and grabbing all-SLC honors his final two 

Adams was a first-team all-Southeastern 
Conference pick after leading the Tigers in 
tackles over the past two season, s He scored 
one touchdown for LSU on a 73-yard in- 
terception return against Indiana and he also 
had a safety-scoring tackle against Kentucky. 
Adams also handled punting duties for the 
Tigers and averaged over 40 yards per kick.

60% pass NTE 

Approximately six out of ten 
Northwestern students 's who took 
the National Teacher's Exam (NTE ) 
last fall passed the test, according to 
Dr. Robert Alost, dean of the 
college of education. 

"I wasn't real disappointed, but I 
think we could do better. 90 % of 
those who took the exam scored 
over 1,000," said Dr. Alost. 

According to Alost, over 60 
students took the exam in February, 
and the results of this testing should 
arrive in a month. 

In explaing why students scored 
as they did last fall, Alost said, "So 
many of the ones who didn't pass 
the exam were nervous. They were 
close, and I'm expecting them to do 
better in February's results."

Editorial ~ 



Political Pickin 9 s 

I refuse to write an article on 
: student apathy. 

i- I realize this may disappoint 
many people, since obviously 
Northwestern students are begging 
for a lecture about non participation 
in student oriented activities (for 
..example, the overwhelming par- 
ticipation in the SGA— SUGB 

"'. No, instead, I will endeavor to 
"'make further friends by predicting, 
,'to the best of my ability, the winners 

in the SGA Executive race. 
,.. For President, I predict Terry 
.McCarty. While there appears to be 
-. stiff competition for this position(?) 
; 1 per- sonally would like to say that 
.' Terry is the best possible candidate 
for the job. As Commissioner of 
Elections this past year, Terry has 
.•shown tremendous ability at 
. remaining unbiased and in handling 
-his responsiblities in a mature and 
...dependable way. 

For Vice President, while again 
the competion is rough, I suggest 
"that a person with workable 
knowledge of the SGA and the 
proceedings of the Senate be chosen 
to serve in this capacity, as he will 
also serve as Senate Chairman. It 

would also be a nice thing to see him 
be regular in attendance, and 
dependable for smooth running of 
Senate proceedings. My Predicion: 
James Mitchell. 

For Treasurer, while again it 
could go either way with the current 
competition, it seems necessary for 
a working knowledge of the Student 
Government Association and of the 
school's monetary system. 
Familiararity of policy and of 
Senate Financial sytems seems a 
good prerequisity. I'm afraid I'll 
have to go with the underdog here, 
gang. The incumbent, in my 
opinion, IS the best choice. 
Prediction: Burkhalter. 

My final prediction is that of 
Commissioner of Elections. This 
job calls for a person who can 
remain unbiased, who can stay 
tough in a bad situation, and who 
has a working knowledge of SGA. I 
predict: Rick Dubois. 

That does it for my predictions. I 
would rather not give an opinion on 
Secretary, or on the Senator or 
Representatvie positions. After all, 
as appointed co-commissioner of 
elections, I have to remain un- 
biased. —ED.

Boy, Did I ever make a big 
mistake last week. I mean bigger 
than usual. 

Everyone who is mad at me for 
printing the misleading picture on 
the front page last week can stand 
up. (Now that 98%of the school is 

I would like to extend my most 
t. -humble apologies for the distasteful 

beer picture printed last week. I 
offer no excuse, because there is 
none. It was a big mistake, and to 
the people who have worked so hard 
for the beer situation (i.e. Mr. Bob 
Wilson, Dr. Bienvenu, and the 
alcohol committee) it was really Hike 
a blow in the face. I've pulled some 
bloopers before, but nothing this 
big. — ED. 

Going Parking 


The parking situation at Nor- 
thwestern has finally gotten to me, 
and while I am aware that the 
administration is doing everything it 
can to solve this problem, I have a 
few suggestions that might help 
temporarily until the parking 
situation can be altered. 

First of all, it should be man- 
datory for all students to make it a 
point to take up two parking spaces, 
and whenever possible, three. 
Several people have already gotten 
into the swing of this idea, and it 
really seems to be affecting the 
situation in a wonderful way. 

Secondly, students living in 
Caddo, Varnado, Natchitoches, 
Caspari, Rapides, and Sabine 
should all be encouraged to DRIVE 
to class rather than walk. This 

would not only help the parking 
situation, but would aid in fuel 
economy as well. 

Thirdly, there should be more 
reserved parking spaces. It stands to 
reason that since the only parking 
spaces that are ever available are 
those that are reserved, if we have 
more reserved spaces there would be 
more available. 

Finally, bring the Demon 
Connection to the parking lots. 
Since yellow lines are obviously 
hard to note, maybe a purple and 
orange blend of lines would be more 
easily spotted, at the same time 
promoting school spirit. 

I realize that these suggestions 
come at a late date, but at this point, 
I think all will agree that anything 
would help. -ED.

"Phi Mu is the major 
contributor to project 
HOPE and has been for 
several years," commented 
Teri Shaw, Phi Mu Social 
Service chairman. 
"Chapters all over the 

United States sponsor 
various fund-raising 
projects to support Phi 
Mu's national philan- 
thropy," added Teri. 

For years the HOPE ship 
sailed to countries, all over 
the world with physicians 
and dentists on board to 
treat patients in the various 
countries they visited. In 
1974, the ship retired, but 
Project HOPE continues to 
operat e Schools of Health 
Sciences in several nations. 

According to Teri, all 
proceeds raised from Kappa 
Iota's project will go 
directly to the HOPE 
operation. Tickets for the 
dance can be purchased in 
advance from any Phi Mu 
for $1 or at the door for $2. 
Local merchants have 
donated merchandise to be 
given away at the dance 
and several special activities 
have been planned.

Texas Southern used wins 
in six events and scored 
heavily in the middle- 
distance races to take the 
team championship in the 
second annual Nor- 
thwestern State University 
Invitational Track and 
Field Meet here Saturday. 

Texas Southern, which 
finished second to the host 
Demons in the first In- 
vitational meet last year, 
amassed 153 1/2 points to 
146 for ruriner-up 
Louisiana Tech. Nor- 
thwestern was third with 93 
points, while Prairie View 
had 49 1/2 Southeast 
Missouri had 41 and 
Southern University had 
seven. Centenary did not 

The meet was held durine 
a steady rain which 
wreaked havoc with some 
events. The triple jump was 
not held due to the in- 
clement weather, and none 
of the nine competitors 
were able to clear the 
opening height in the pole 

Mostly due to the 
weather conditions, only 
one new meet record was set 
during the event and one 
other was tied. Cornell 
Garrett of La. Tech turned 
in a 10.4 clocking in the 
100-meter dash to break the 
mark of 10.5 set by Larry 
Kimbell of Texas Southern 
last season, and Texas 
Southern's Fred Taylor tied 
the 400-meter dash record 
of 48.1 established by 
Northwestern's Tommy 
Swacker last year. 

TSU's winning total was 

. m 

due mostly to its success in 
the middle distances, as 
they scored a total of 24 1/2 
points in the 800-meter run 
and 18 in the 400-meter 
event placed by Taylor's 
record-tying effort. Clifton 
Perry won the 800-meter 
event for TSU with a 1:52.4 

Tech's Garrett was the 
meet's only double winner 
as he also tied for first place 
in the 200-meter dash with a 
21.4 clocking to equal the 
effort of TSU's Kimball. 

Tech had four first places in 
the meet, while Nor- 
thwestern had three and 
Southeast Missouri and 
Prairie View had one each. 

In addition to the middle- 
distance wins, Texas 
Southern also took wins in 
the shot put with Mark 
Lundy's 55-2 one-fourth 
effort, in the 400-meter 
relay with a 44.1 clocking 
and in both hurdle races, 
with Robert Kennedy 
taking the 110-meter highs 
in 14.3 and James Baldwin 

winning the 400-meter 
intermediates in 53.6. 

Tech's other three firsts 
come from Jeff Darling 
with a 9:42.4 effort in the 
3000-meter steeplechase, 
Roger Henderson with a 
148-7 effort in the discus 
and Pat Cross with a 
14:48.3 in the 5000-meter 

Two of Northwestern's 
first places came in the 
field events, with Kelvin Fee 
capturing the javelin with a 
196-7 throw and Mike Fyler 

winning the high jump with 
a 6-4 three-fourths effort to 
help offset for the loss of 
the points in the rain- 
marred flat jumps. Billy 
Green had NSU's other first 
with a 4:00.0 clocking in the 
1500 meters. 

Southeast Missouri's 
Richard Townsend had his 
team's only first with a 22- 
11 1/2 long jump, while 
Prairie View's only victory 
came in the 1600-meter 
relay in 3:14.2.

Intramural Rebound 

An unidentified player on the Son of a Gunners 
team takes down this rebound during action 
against the Glove Club during men's semifinal 
action in the men's intramural championships at 
Northwestern State University Wednesday night. 
Pong Hebert (11) and Kent Walker (right) are 
defending for the Glove Club, but the Son of a

at 1:05 p.m. 

NSU stands at 2-10 on the season prior to a 
twinbill Monday against La. Tech, but Demon coach 
Herbie Smith said that the record wasn't any in- 
dication of how good his squad is. 

"We played three very good games against a 
strong University of Houston team over in Smith 
said. "They have one of the best teams we'll play all 
year, and we were ahead of them in three of the four 
games we played." 

The Demons dropped all four games to the 
Cougars after splitting twinbills with Northeast La. 
and McNeese State, but NSU will be beginning a 
streak of 16 straight home games in the La. College 

The Demons will have available for duty 
righthanders Scott Stagner (0-3) Kerry Kwowen (0-1), 
Chris Soileau (1-1), Mike Vienne (0-1) and Steve Fry

Members of Northwestern State 
University's golf team were treated 
to a "kickoff" dinner for the 1979 
season by Bonanza Sirloin Pit 
owner John Leslie (front row left). 
The dinner came just prior to 
NSU's opening golf outing of the- 
season in the Stephen F. Austin 
Invitational Tournament at 

Nacogdoches, Tex. Members of 
the Demon golf squad include (1. 
to r.) Derek Anderson, David 
Goldstein, Greg Vesey, Charles 
Ingalls, Doug Sargent, Tom 
Brassell, Doyle Anderson, David 
Thompson and Coach Derwood

Like the old saying goes, " All good things 
must come to an end." That's the case for two 
Lady Demons basketballers, Dianna Cary and 
Rachel Spencer, and also for two Demon 
roundballers, Jerry Lewis and Mike Fyler. 

Cary closes out a brilliant four-year career 
with the Lady Demons this season. A four year 
starter, Cary, nicknamed "Tootie", finishes as 
NSU's all-time 'leading rebounder and third 
leading all-time scorer. 

She finishes her career with 752 rebounds in 
117 games for an average of 6.5 rebounds per 
game. She also accumulated 948 points for a 
career average of 8.2 points per game. 

Cary, a native of Lacassine, also ranks 
fourth in career free throws percentages for the 
Lady Demons with a percentage of 72.5 per- 

Her personal highs include 26 points against 
Northeast as a freshman and 16 rebounds this 
season against Xavier. She closed out with a 15 
point and 12 rebound effort in her final ap- 
pearance for NSU in the LAIAW state tour- 
nament against McNeese State. 

Cary, a career 40 percent field goal shooter, 
was also excellent defensive player and assist 
artist for the Lady Demons and her presence 
and leadership on the court will definitely be 
missed. She hopes to finish her education and 
enter into a coaching job. 

Demon Streak Snapped 

Wins in all three doubles 
matches propelled the 
University of Oklahoma to 
an upset 6-3 victory over 
Northwestern State 
University in a dual tennis 
match here Sunday af- 

The loss snapped an 
incredible 44-match home 
court winning streak that 
the Demon netters had 
compiled over the past four 
seasons. The last time an 
;NSU tennis squad lost at 
■home was during the 1975 

The Demons, now 5-2 on 
[the season, swept all of the 
top three singles matches, 
with senior standout 
IRicardo Acuna taking on a 
6-3, 7-6 victory over 
Oklahoma's Brian Crozier 
in the top singles match. 
Howdever, Crozier and 
Mike Benson teamed to 

make a 6-2, 3-6, 7-5 thriller 
over Acuna and Alfredo 
Trullenque in the top 
doubles match to start the 
doubles string. 

Oklahoma, now even at 
4-4 after the upset, swept 
the bottom three singles 
matches to even the match

Northwestern State 
University's Lady Demons 
extended their season 
record to 3-0 and did not 
allow any matches to go 
past two sets in taking a 7-2 
victory over Southern 
Arkansas University here 
Sunday afternoon. 

The Lady Demons' only 
losses came on a forfeit in 
one singles and one doubles 
match because of an injury. 
Other than those, no match 
took very long, as freshman 
Marie-Jeanne Huyben led 
the way with a 6-1, 6-0 win 
over SAU's Phyllis Webb in 
the No. 1 singles match. 

Huyben and Babette 
Cramer teamed for a 6-1, 6- 
win over Webb and Ann 
Cross in the top doubles 


By Buddy Wood 

Spencer also closes out a two-year career here 
at NSU. The Morrison, 111. native finishes her 
career with a 3.0 point per game average, but 
she averaged 5.6 points during the 1977-78 
season when she started in all but seven games 
in the post position. 

Spencer a 6 foot 2 center, saw limited action 
this season but did come into several games and 
provide a spark with her shot-blocking ability 
and defensive presence. — 

Spencer finishes her two years with a 45 
percent field goal mark and her career point 
high was 16 points against Lamar during her 
junior year. 

Lewis closes out an excellent two-year career 
for the Demons with over 700 points. He came 
to Northwestern as a walk-on prior to the 77-78 
season and averaged almost 14 points per game 
in his career. 

Lewis, who specialized in long range jump 
shots, became known for his high arching 25 
and 30 foot jump shots. He finishes with a 45 

percent field goal mark, but considering the 
distance that most of his shots were taken from, 
that percentage is a good one. 

"Lew", a native of Grambling, scored a 
career high of 28 points his junior year and 
closed out his career in fashion with a 21 point 
effort against South Alabama on 10 for 18 

The loss of Lewis will certainly hurt the 
Demons, but heirapparent Jerry Lynch cer- 
tainly has the capabilities to take up where 
Lewis left off. 

Fyler also closes out a two-year career for the 
Demons. A native of Scott City, Kan. Fyler 
finished his career on a high note with 10 points 
in the South Alabama game even though he 
played only 13 minutes. 

Fyler was a high jump specialist during his 
two years at Dodge City Junior College and he 
used his ability to average 4.5 points per game 
for NSU and also provided "instant offense" 
in several games during his career. 

His career high in points was 15 against 
Southeastern during his junior season. 

The presence of the four graduating seniors 
in NSU basketball this season will surely be 
missed. We would like them to know we ap- 
preciate the contributions they have made to 
NSU and wish them well in the future.

McCarty's position is, "It is not 
what a person can do — but it is what 
we all can do. We must as Nor- 
thwestern students do what we can 
to unite ourselves in our struggle 
towards an education." 

"I feel that as the Student 
Government President I can suc- 
cessfully be a liason between the 
administration and the students as 
well as a liason between students 
and students. What this university 
does need is more student par- 
ticipation in activities." 

"As SGA president I can do my 
best to involve students in com- 
mittees and events. This is the 
student's university: I along with 
others can help them make the best 
of it." 

James Mitchell states, "As Vice- 
President of the SGA, I will be 
chairman of the student services 
committee and I want to make this 
an activie committee." 

"Since I live in a dormitory and 
eat in Iverville Dining Hall, I am 
especially aware of the problems in 
these areas and I will be active, 
trying my best, to improve con-

important role in SGA and with 
your help and concern I will do my 
best to serve you as secretary." 

Alton Burkhalter served as 

Treasurer for SGA this past year. 

"In my position as Treasurer I have 
gained much insight into the 
workings of the SGA. Finance is the 
backbone of any organization and 
the SGA is no exception." 

"As a business-accounting major, 
I feel I have the background to 
compile and keep a balanced 
budget. I enjoy working with people 
and possess an open mind to any 
thoughts that could help improve

work well with people and to keep

Dear Editor, 

I notice that a can of Billy 
Beer was in the center of a 
picture of beer cans and 
bottles featured in the March 
6, 1979 issue of the Current 
Sauce celebrating the recent 
legislation allowing beer on 
campus at NSU. It is ironic 
and somewhat symbolic that 
at the very same time this 
picture appeared, Billy 
Carter, Billy Beer's 
namesake, entered the alcohol 
abuse center at Longbeach 
Naval Hospital in Longbeach, 
California to be treated for 
alcoholism. Some will 
snicker that this is a typical 
response from a typical 
minister. However, my 
concern about this recent 
legislation is not so much 
rising up in righteous in- 
dignation at a devil brew but 
just downright selfishness- 

We are the ones who are 
called to pick up the pieces of 
shattered lives and tragedies 
that result from drinking 
abuses and-or alcoholism I am 
talking about entering people 
in alcohol abuse centers, 
people suffering from 
sclerosis of the liver, people 
who are victims of accidents 
caused by drunk dirver, 
marriages that collaspe 
because of drinking problems, 
employment lost because of 
chronic alcolholism, etc, etc, 


adinfinitum, adnauseum. I 
realize that the 'typical 
response is' the key is 
moderation. However, 
moderation was the intention 
of the twelve million 
alcoholics who are living in 
the United States today. Most 
of them started by drinking 
beer. My feeling about 
tobacco, alcohol or any other 
form of potentially dangerous 
drug should be, don't even 
start. For some this recent 
legislation is a cause for 
celebration. For those of us 
who have dedicated our lives 
to helping people find the very 
best in life, the recent 
legislation is not a cause for 
celebration but a feeling that 
we have made a step back- 
ward. It is true that I, and the 
people who agree with my 
view, would not be considered 
"good ole boys" but to really 
get a good picture, and the 
true meaning of the potential 
danger of any form of 
alcohol, ask Billy Carter how 
much fun it is to go through 
withdrawl symptoms in an 
alcohol abuse center. Many 
of the people that I try to help 
who have drinking problems 
got their start at a college or 

Dr. Larry W. Fields 


urges yes 
vote to bill 


! A 

Recently a bill proposing a 
$2.00 a semester fee tor the 
intramural program was 
passed in SGA. Now it is time 
for the students to vote. 

Two dollars per semester is 
not much to ask for the 
improvement and further 
development of the in- 
tramural program. Right 
now the program is func- 
tioning, but with sometimes 
semi- usable equipment and 
facilities. With the fee, the 
department would be able to 
purchase new equipment and 
T — shirts, fix up the 
recreation building where 
intramurals is housed, and 
introduce more activities. 

As it is now, 30% of last 
semester's student body was 
active in intramurals. Even 
more use the building for the 
gym and raquetball courts. 
With the improvements more 
people may be urged into 
trying intramurals. I know 
intramurals have helped fulfill 
my college life. 

On Wednesday, March 21, 
we will be asked to vote on the 
$2.00 a semester fee. I hope 
everyone will consider the bill 
and what it is for. What is 
$2.00 for a full semester of 
fun, games, and meeting and 
being with friends-the 
equivalent of one good meal 
at McDonald's.

Those Reports Check Out 
- Taxes Paid the Checks 

have received thousands of 
letters from Americans 
who are tired of seeing 
their tax money wasted. 
They have sent us reports 
of government misspend- 
ing which we have checked 
out. Here are a few: 

Too many American offi- 
cials overseas live in lux- 
urious Pukka-Sahib style. 
Mali, for example, is an 
impoverished landlocked 
nation in the Sahara Des- 
ert. All 15 houses leased to 
American foreign aid per- 
sonnel are equipped with 
swimming pools. Yet a 
public pool is available 

In Pakistan, the former 
mission director, Richard 
Cashin, put an official car 
and chauffeur at his fami- 
ly's beck and call. Family 
members were driven to 
the food markets, beauty 
shops, rug dealers and 
other stores in sumptuous 
style. But auditors stopped 
the mission from spending 
$69,000 for 100 clothes 
dryers. The air in Paki- 
stan, they argued, is bone- 
dry, and clothes dry very 

There has been even 
more frivolous spending 
here at home. The govern- 
ment, for example, spent 
more than $91 million in 
one year alone on popula- 
tion research, some of 
which had little to do with 
population problems. 

More than $200,000 was 
spent, for instance, to 
study the travel habits of 
the blacktail jackrabbit in 
Utah. Another $40,000 was 
granted to study mosquito 
egg development. And 
$200,000 went to research 
the mysteries of toad fertil- 

Word of these curious 
research grants got back 
to government auditors, 
who tightened up the re- 
quirements for population 
studies. But sources told 
our reporter Moira Forbes 
that $300,000 is still being 
spent to study the protein 
synthesis in young snails 
and sea urchins.

waste. Send examples of 

government extrava- 
gances to Jack Anderson's

Expensive Toy: It costs 
foe Navy millions of dol- 

lars in repairs to keep the 
fleet afloat. That goes for 
the toy fleet, also. Several 
years ago, the state of 
Massachusetts gave the 
Navy a scale model of the 
aircraftjcarrier Wasp. The 

model is toted around by 
Navy recruiters. But now 
the toy ship needs an 
overhaul, which will cost 
the taxpayers $4,000.

Campus News 

Senator, Representative candidates 
issue campaign statements 


As a candidate for Senator-at- 
Large I would like to state the 
following: I'm for improving 
student moral, improving the 
quality of the food served at 
Iberville Cafeteria, and for im- 
proving the streets on campus. 2) 
I'm against any more fee increases, 
against giving money to just any 
group or organization who asks for 
it. Roger D. Adams. 


I have been enrolled in NSU for 
three years now, and each semester I 
have watched issues involving 
campus improvement get swept 
under the rug, promises made and 
forgotten later; the students are 
simply not being taken seriously. I 
believe that it is time for a 
progressive student body with new 
ideas and the energy to back them 
up. Clifton Bolgiano. 


One of my main priorities as 
Senator-at-Large will be to work for 
more weekend and in-dorm ac- 
tivities. It will be my objective to 
provide fair and equal represen- 
tation for all members of the 
student body. I would greatly 
appreciate or vote tomorrow. 
Thank you. Jay Breyer 


NSU is a school with a great 
future, and I would like to be a part 
of it. I am a second semester 
freshman, but I have been around 
the SGA a lot this year. I am aware 
of the students' needs and will do 
my best to fulfill them. Jase Brock 


I, Chip Cole, am a freshman 
majoring in Pre-Medicine, with an 
overall GPA of 3.5. I am an active 
member of Kappa Sigma and the 
Phi Eta Sigma Honorary Fraternity. 
I feel as though I have the ex- 
perience and qualifications to fulfill 
the job of SGA Senator-at-Large. 

Our student government has set 
many high goals for the upcoming 
year and with your support I will do 
my best to see that they are all at- 
tained. Chip Cole 


I want to help you, that's why I 
am running for Senator. I believe we 
need someone to listen to students 
and not be afraid to speak for them. 
THAT'S ME! 1 have been on 
campus for several years and realize 
most of theproblems confronting 
us. Vote for me and I'll help you! 
John Conally 


As a fresan at Northwestern I 
have watched the actions of the 
SGA for the past sester and a half. I 
respect the organization and would 
like to become more involved in 
student activities by being a 
Senator-at-Large. Please help with 
your vote. Kim Haddon 


I, Maxine Harrison, am running 
for reelection as representative at 
large because I enjoy working with 
the Union Board. I feel that I can 
fulfill the duties of this position 
because I like to interact with my 
fellow students. Maxine Harrison. 


I am running for SUGB 
Representative- at Large because I 
would like to give part of my time to 
help NSU students. I am also in- 
terested in seeing NSU students 
become more enthusiastic and 
involved in campus activities. I 
would appreciate your vote on 
March 21. Renee Hebert 


My name is Tony Hernandez and 
I am seeking the office of Senator- 
at-Large. I have worked in SGA 
committees, and I now wish to serve 
on the Student Senate. There I will 
put to use my qualifications and 
experience as your Senator-at- 

Large. I would appreciate your 
support in the upcoming senatorial 


Since being here, I have noticed 
that there seems to be a gap between 
students in athletics, students in 
fraternities and sororities, and 
students in other clubs and 
organizations. I feel that if the gap 
can be closed, Northwestern will 
become stronger in every field of 
education, athletics, and 
organizations. Therefore, I have 
decided to run for the office of 
Senator-atLarge, for I feel that I can 
help close that gap. Jim Hoops 


As a freshmen, I would ap- 
preciate your vote for SGA Senator- 
at-Large. I would like to be given a 
chance to work in SGA and become 
further involved in student oriented 
activities. Your help would be 
greatly appreciated. Barbie Jenkens 


As a native of Natchitoches, I've 
been familiar with NSU for quite 
some time. I am in my junior year, 
and can honestly say that I have 
never seen Northwestern as strong 
as it is now. I would like very much 
to take part in our university's 
continued growth by serving you, 
for it is the students who have made 
NSU a college we can be proud of. 
Becky Johnson. 


Through my experience at NSU it 
has not been hard for me to see that 
student participation on this campus 
is very low. All I can do as an in- 
dividual is urge each student to 
participate in some form of activite 
because after all, this is your 
university. If elected, I will be 
concerned with improving the 
image of NSU. I realize that this 
cannot be accomplished by one 
person or one group. It is up to each 
one of us to get motivated and get 
NSU going strong. Cliff Lopez

I am Charie Marchand, a 
sophomore nursing major. I am 
running for representative at large 
because I feel that SUGB is a very 
important part of NSU. As a 
representative at large, I would be 
willing to take the extra time to find 
out what activities the students want 
and work hard to promote them. I 
believe that I am qualified for this 
position because I am interested in 
the student voice, and I would 
appreciate your support in this 


My name is David (Radar) Martin 
and I feel I am qualified to be an 
SGA Senator-at-Large. I attended 
the President's Classroom for 
Young Americans in Washington 
DC and I am currently in the 
President's Leadership Program her 
at NSU. I understand both student 
and faculty views in Student 
Government. I would appreciatie 
your vote and support. Thank-you, 
David Martin. 


My name is Maims McFarland, 
and I am a sophomore majoring in 
Mathematics Education. I am a 
candidate for UGB Representative 
at Large, and this statement is to 
solicite your vote. I feel that I can 
contribute to the social, cultural, 
and educational development of the 
students, as well as the faculty; if 
elected Representative at Large. 
Mairus McFarland 


My attendance at many of the 
SGA mettings and my service on the 
SGA Spirit Committee are among 
my qualifications for Senator-at- 
Large. I am willing to work hard for 
Northwestern, and I would ap- 
preciate your vote. Bob McKellar 


My name is Ginger Miller and I 
am a candidate for the Student 
Union Governing Board position of 
representative at large. I am 

presently a sophomore at NSU and 
an active member of Sigma Sigma 
Sigma sorority. I live on campus 
and I feel that I am well informed 
on the studetn attitudes and ac- 
tivities at NSU. 


As a first year student at Nor- 
thwestern, I have watched and 
become involved in several activities 
of both SUGB and SGA. As a 
person who has always been in- 
vol ed in school activites I feel that 
I wouldjjejjuahfied to serve in the 

position of SGA senator. I would 
like to be a part of helping 
Norhtwestern in its climb toward 
being a better university. Karen 


My name is Mary Beth Nicolle 
and I am running for the position of 
SUGB Representative-at-Large. I 
feel that I am qualified for the job 
since I was on the Lagnaippe 
Committee for two semesters and I 
am familiar with the objectives of 
SUGB. I have a willingness to work 
and want to represent you, the 
students, in voicing our opinions 
concerning NSU. Mary Beth Nicolle 


My name is Leon Potter. I am a 
Business Administration major with 
concentration in Finance, I am a 
resident of Shreveport Louisiana 
and am classified as a Sophomore 
her at NSU. I have served on the 
SGA faithfully for two years which 
makes me have first hand experience 
with the structural organization of 
the SGA. I know the student's 
problem; wants and needs because, 
I myself am a student with the same 
problems. Leon Potter. 


I'll work for a University and 
SGA in which we and future 
students can be proud. My presious 
involvement with faculty, staff, 
organizations, and students will 
help insure this coitment. Thank 
you for your vote and support, 
sincerely, Mark Rachal. 


I want to work for 
SGA because I am very concerned 
about the rights of NSU students. 
Something has got to be done to 
improbe campus life and I am 
willing to work for it. 

It's about time we 
all pull together to get what we 
deserve. Liz Rash 


I feel I can do my part to 
represent all NSU students. I'm not 
afraid to speak out for individuals 
and organizations who want their 
opinions and suggestions known. In 
my opinion, students are unin- 
terested in Northwesterns Student 
Government because they are 
unaware of who and whatSGA is. 

I'll do a good job for 
YOU! shawnee Remedies

I think it is very important fo%he 
studetns to have a say about the 
activities that take place on campus. 
I feel I am capable of representing 
the studetn body as SfU^B 
Representative-at-Large because^] 
have had previous Union Board 
experience. For the past three 
semeslers, I have been an active 
member of the Lagniappe Com- 
mittee. Judith Reeves. 


I am running for Senator at Large 
because I feel that the SGA needs to 
develop as a college level student 
government organization which will 
secure the freedoms that a mature 
adult student requires. This is only 
accomplished through persistant 
efforts by an assembly which is a 
recognized representative body.

My name is Julie Thibodeaux, I 
am a junior, majoring in Art 
Education. I have served as a 
Representative on the Student 
Union Governing Board for one 
year and have found it to be a 
fulfilling experience. Meeting and 
working with my fellow students 
and being able to represent the 
ideas of the studetn body are the 
purposes of the representatives. 
Julie Thibodeaux 


What NSU needs is an incentive 
for change. The necessary 
motivation can only be brought 
about through a well established 
SGA program. Let me, Melissa 
Wiegand, provide that incentive and 

Having previously held govern- 
ment and leadership positions, I 
have the experience necessary for 
this job. My concern for the student 
body will continue after I am 
elected. Melissa J. Wiegand.

representative statements were to be no longer 
than fifty words in length. Few candidates, 
however, complied with this rule, making it 
necessary to edit the majority of the statements. 
We have cut them down to as close to fifty words

"Big Mouth" 
on campus 

"Big Mouth," a full-length film about the life cycle 
of the largemouth bass, will be shown Wednesday night 
at 7:30 p.m. in John S. Kyser Hall Auditorium at 
Northwestern State University. 

The film presentation, which is open to the public 
free of charge, is being sponsored by Sports Village of 
Natchit ches in conjunction with the Student Union 
Governing Board of Northwestern. 

More than $100 in fishing merchandise including a 
graphit rod and a Shakespeare President II casting rod 
will be given away as door prizes. 

The hour-long film is narrated by Rod Sterling. The 
color production explains the life cycle of the 
largemouth bass, its predators, habits and spawning. 

The film was shot in Crystal Springs, Fla., and 90 
percent of the film was shot underwater. The 
production is 85 percent educational and 15 percent 
action oriented^ 

Representatives of the Shakespeare Company will be 
present to discuss the difference in spawning techniques

After nearly two weeks of 
rattling at various locations 
iround the country, only 
•four teams are now left in 
%e quest for the 1979 
■rersion of the NCAA 
basketball championship. 

The amazing thing about 
t is that only one of the 
"final Four remaining was 
licked to be in that position 
rtyhen the tournament 
started some 40 teams ago. 
\iichigan State, with a 
•urprisingly easy win over 
»jotre Dame on Sunday, 
*as picked from the outset 
■ jo win the Mid-east Region, 
-ind there was no doubt if 
my of their contests that 
"4iey justified as being the 
avorites. Earvin "magic" 
Johnson and Greg Kelser, 
••ivo of the best players in 
; tollege basketball today, 
ed the Spartans through 
he regional schedule in 
:|ylish fashion, Kelser with 
lis spectacular inside play, 
wind Johnson with his own 
version of the "Magic 

-] Michigan State will now 
ackle Penn, the Ivy 
^eague Champ and one of 
his year's big Cinderella 
lories. Penn made it to the 
:.nnal Four by upsetting 
:iorth Carolina and 
Syracuse on the way to the 
inal win of the East 
pgional championship over 
John's another sur- 
ising team in this year's 

The Quakers of coach 
11 Weinhauer have a star 
their own in Tony Price, 
le Ivy League player of the 
$ar this season. Price is a 
try underrated player, but 
s skills have blossomed in 
e recent Penn flurry of 
ctories. Penn has several 
vher steady performers, on 
i squad, but not enough 
lepower to stay with 
Michigan St. Look for 
any exciting things from 
:bhnson and Kelser on their 




I is 




way to the National 
Championship game. 
Penn's only chance of an 
upset is if the score is close 
at halftimc.but look for 
the Spartans to win it big. 

The other semi-final 
game will match the 
"Birdman" against the 
"Head Demon", being 
aging veteran mentor Ray 
Meyer of DePaul. Even 
though it goes without 
saying, the "Birdman" is 
Larry Bird of top-ranked 
and undefeated Indiana 

DePaul comes to the 
Final Four for the first 
time, thus achieveing the 
goal set by the Blue Demons 
and Coach Meyer. They 
stunned favorite UCLA to 
win the West Regional and 
certainly have to be the 
sentimental favorite since 
this may be won by the Blue 
Demon head coach of some 
40 years. DePaul may find 
themselves in a letdown 
situation against the 
Sycamores after the 
emotion-drained victory 
over UCLA. 

Indiana State entered the 
tournament as the Midwest 
Regional favorite despite a 
very tough field. Larry 
Bird, the best player in 
college ball at this time, led 
the Sycamores to victories 
over Oklahoma and tough 
Arkansas, but the ISU 
bunch has another bonafide 
star in powerful guard Carl 
Nicks, one of the best off- 
balance shooters anywhere 

Indiana state, though 
undefeated and No. 1 in the 
nation, is also somewhat of 
a Cinderella story, the only 
difference being that the 
Sycamores have been talked 
about all season long, while 
Penn and even Depaul have 
been in obscurity all season. 

Bird should control the 
game against the smaller 
inside players of DePaul 

Curtis Watkins and James 
Mitcham, whether it be by 
scoring or with his light- 
ning quick passes. Look 
for Nicks to have a good 
game too against the small, 
but very good defensive 
guards of DePaul. This 
should be a close one, 
depending on whether super 
freshman Mark Aguirre of 
DePaul has a good game. 
Look for the Sycamores in 
the finals... after a hard 
fought win over DePaul in 
the semis. 

For the national 
championship, its too close 
to call between the Spartans 
of Michigan State and the 
Sycamores of Indianna 
State. My only prediction 
is that the team who is 
ahead at halftime will win. 

Lady Techsters of La. Tech 
breezed through their 
region to make it to the 
Final Four in the race for 
women's national champ. 
Old Dominion No. 1 most 
of the season, seems to be 
the only team with a shot at 
beating the Lady Techsters. 
Otherwise look for the 
ladies of Sonja Hogg to 
bring the championship 
back to Ruston...The 
elimination of Notre Dame 
by Michigan St. prevented 
the possibility of the state 
of Indiana having the final 
two in each major post- 
season tournament. Indiana 
and Purdue are still alive in 
the NIT race while Indiana 
State is one of the Final 
Four in the 

NCAA... Natchitoches Be- 
verage Co. and the Miller 
Brewing Co. will sponsor a 
softball tourney March 24

Demons take six of eight 

by Buddy Wood 
Asst. Spts. Editor 

The NSU Demon 
baseballers used some super 
pitching performances last 
week along with some 
timely hitting to win six of 
eight games and boost their 
season mark to 8-12. 

The Demon nine started 
the week by scoring three 
runs in the sixth inning to 
take a 3-2 win over rival La. 
Tech in the first game of a 
twin-bill. Singles by Curtis 
Dorsey and Steve Holloway 
around two Tech errors led 
the Demons to victory 
behind the pitching of 
Kerry Keowen. Tech came 
back, however, to take the 
nightcap 5-2 behind the 

eight-strikeout effort of 
Mike Jeffcoat. 

The Demons then got two 
outstanding mound per- 
formances in a double- 
header sweep over La. 
College. Lefthander Kenny 
Stelly pitched a three hitter 
for the Demons in the 
openre and was given all the 
runs he needed in the third 
inning on RBI doubles by 
Holloway and Bill Land. 
Steve Fry then pitched a 
five-hit shutout to give the 
Demons the twinbill by 
scores of 2-1 and 7-0. 

Central Missouri's State 
was the next opponent for 
the Demons, and the Mules 
were able win only one 
game from NSU. CMSU 

scored six runs in the top of 
the seventh inning in the 
first game of Wednesday's 
pair to take a 7-2 victory. 
Dan Placemeier threw a 

three-hitter for the Mules 
and Kevin Schaefer had a 
three-run homer in the big 
Mule seventh inning. The 
Demons then won the 
second game 3-1 behind the 
complete-game pitching 
effort of Freshman Mike 

One day later, tye 
Demons swept two more 
games from the Mules 
behind the hitting of Mike 
Fyler and the pitching of 
Keowen and Scott Stagner. 
Fyler's sacrifice fly scored 
Sam Johnson in the bottom 

of the eighth inning to give„ 
the Demons a 4-3 win in the 
opener. Stagner got the win 
for the Demons as he werft'-y' 
all the way in the contest PfH 
Keowen then got his secpritff • 
win of the week when alt" 
RBI double by Holloway trt sctl 
the sixth frame gave tne.'i 
Demons a 3-2 win. Fyler 
produced the other vua 
Demon runs with a two-tun 
single in the first inning. 

The Demons were 
scheduled to play a„ 
doubleheader with CMSU' . 
on Friday and one with the. 5 '"

Hage 6 CURRENT SAUCE, Tuesday, March 20, 1979 


Intramural fee 
needs increase 

Two dollars is not a lot of money. You can get a little 
more than three gallons of gas for two bucks-if you're 
lucky and if you pump the gas yourself. You can buy two 
hamburgers for $2.00- but you won't have anything left to 
buy a coke with. A six-pack of beer will cost you a couple 
of bucks-if you know the owner personally. 

Ther really aren't too many things that cost just two 
dollars nowadays and that you get your money's worth 
for. But Wednesday NSU students have the chance at a 
super bargain in the form of a $2.00 fee to improve the 
intramural program here at Northwestern. 

How much would it improve the intramural program 
here? Well, try a 300 percent budget increase on for size- 
going from the current $5,350 operating budget to a 
projected $15,250 next year. 

With an extra $10,000 to work with, it's a sure thing that 
Giner Parrish and the Intramural Advisory Committee 
could start to provide NSU with the type of intramural 
program that it needs. The Committee has outlined exactly 
how each dollar of the proposed assessment would be 
used. ..and naturally, considering the current state of the 
Intramural Department, there are a lot of areas that could 
use shot in the arm financially. 

This is not to mean that Ginger and her staff have not 
done an excellent job of using what they have had to work 
with this year, but simply to point out that there is a need 
for a little bit of help if the intramural program is to im- 

How would it improve the program? Quoting from a 
fact sheet given each SGA member, the Advisory Com- 
mittee says, "With the assessment of the student fee, an 
adequate amount of money would be available for 
equipment, supplies, officials, etc., withsome left over for 
other uses. Some of the ways the remainder of money 
could be used are: 

'. Paint the raquetball courts, 2. Build stands for 
viewing the raquetball courts, 3. Provide a reservation 
system for the raquetball courts. 4. Increase the hours of 
the Intramural Building. 5. Paint the interior of the In- 
tramural Building. 6. Install a Universal weight machine 
on the bottom floor of the Intramural Building. 7. Install a 
sauna in the Intramural building. 8. Add new activities to 
the Intramural Department." 

And the list goes on. ..and on. One plus of the 
assessemnt of the fee would be the Intramural Department 
would then be able to have fund-raising activities to help 
support its program-and some of the projects listed above 
to improve the existing facilities. 

None of the fee-ana Ginger is emphatic about this-will 
be or could be used to pay any staff members' salary. The 
gist of the whole thing is, as Parish puts it, "every cent the 
students put into the intramural program will be returned 
to them, in the form of more and better intramural ac- 
tivities and facilities." 

A survey of 125 universities and colleges across the 
nation revealed that 85 percent of the schools had more in 
their intramural operating budget than NSU does, and 70 
percent had more money allocated per student. When 
asked which method of funding the intramural program 
they preferred, 62 percent of those responding said student 
fees. Another 27 percent said funds should be allocated 
from the general fund, as is done at NSU. 

Why a fee increase? Again, quoting the v Advisory 
Committee-SGA fact sheet, "in order to increase our 
operating budget, and therefore make more services and 
opportunities available to more students." 

It is obvious that the Intramural Department is com- 
mitted to doing its' best for the students at NSU. A "yes" 
vote in tomorrow's referendum on an intramural student 
fee would be a vote of confidence for a job well done, and 
a promise of more and better things to come. A "no" vote 
tomorrow would be a slap in the face of those, staff and 
students alike, who have worked so hard to improve NSU 
intramurals. Do them a favor-and do yourself a favor as 
well. Vote "yes" for the student fee assessemnt tomorrow.

Freshman registration program to be initiated 

A new program will be initiated this summer tor trie 
registration and orientation of incoming freshmen 
students, according to Dr. Richard Galloway, Dean of 
the University College , Mrs. Barbara Gillis Coor- 
dinator of Orientation and Mr. Danny Seymour. 

The program will offer three sessions, June 27-29, 
July 11-13, and July 22-24. Fees for the two and a half 
day workshop will total $30.00 

"The idea of this whole program is to get students 
excited about coming to college," stated Miss Agatha 
Newitt, who is also helping to promote the session. 

"We want them to meet with academic people with 

whom they will be working when thev enroll in the 
University," added Dr. Galloway. Those people in 
academic areas will explain to them things about courses 
and curriculum that thev will be following." 

Dr. Galloway continued," There will be time for 
information on financial aid, housing, on student life, 
ROTC, student media, culture areas .Uniting 
Ministries, and social activities." This information will 
be provided, along with group activities for en- 

The students will have their class schedule set up for 

them so that they can register and states Mrs. Gillis, 
/'..all thev will have to do when thev come in the fall is 
to pay their fees." 

Emphasis on personal attention is a major goal of the 
program, as well as a more leisurely and comprehensive 
look into NSU. 

Students will also take their math and English 
placement tests and finish with them before the busy 
first week of school. 

Dr. Galloway explained that the program had 

already been successfully implemented at other 
colleges, this seems to be the trend among American 


Northwestern students are asked to get involed in the 
new proram by helping introduce the^NSU campus to 
the freshmen. "We want some enthusiastic, motivating 
NSU students who are willing to contribute some extra 
time to promote Northwestern. These students will help 
ease anxieties of incoming freshmen and explain the ins 
and outs of college life— in other words, presenting 
Northwestern from the student point of view. "There 
are several positions open and an honorarium will be 
paid," said Mrs. Gilfis, who added that interested 
students should contact her in Room 106 Caldwall Hall. 


The Student Voice of Northwestern 

MARCH 27, 


Vol. vVi\ No.^TT 







Students voted an increase in fees 
by one-hundred forth-three votes 
last week and forced a runoff in 
four senatorial positions during 
annual spring elections held in the 
student union. 

Winning Senatorial positions for. 
next year's SGA were Mike Barton, 
Chip Cole, Jim Hoops, Barbie 
Jenkens, Becky Johnson Bob 
McKellar, and Karen Murphy. 
Representative winners were Maxine 
Harrison, Renee Hebert, Charlie 
Machand, Mairus J. McFarland, 
Ginger Miller, Mary Beth Nicolle, 
and Julie Thibodeaux. 

A runoff will be held tomorrow to 
determine the remaining four 
senator positions between Clifton 
Bolgiano. Kim Haddon, Tony 
Hernandez, Cliff, Lopez, John 
Connally, Mark Rachal, Deah 
Gulley, and Shawnee Remedies. The 
runoff election will be held in the 
Student Union from 8 a.m. to 7 

What a mess! 

Voter turnout was higher than 
usual, according to' appointed co- 
commissioner of elections John 
McKellar. McKellar stated that six 
hundred sixty-one students par- 
ticiDated in the election. 

The Intramural bill passed with 
sixty-three per cent of the five- 
■ hundred seventy eight votes cast in 
the fee increase issue. Intramural 
Director Ginger Parrish, who has 
worked on the referendum for 
several months, related that she was

it... the pressure's going to be on me 
to show how we're going to use it. 
We need several basic pieces of 
equipment such as tennis,

and these will be available for check

mission will be $5.00. Coliseum box 
office and doors will open at 7 p.m.

In a final action of 
legislation, current SGA 
president John McKellar 
introduced three bills in 
Monday night's Senate 
meeting which included the 
formation of a Book Co- 
op, additio n to current 
Election code procedures, 
and a safeguarding measure 
insuring the newly passed 
Intramural bill. McKellar 
also proposed an in depth 
outline of the Executive 
Branch of the Student 
Government Association, 

adding three 
positions to 

new cabinet 
the already 

added positions of the 
Executive Cabinet. 

SGA Bill No. 52 provides 
that it be resolved that 
"the Student Government 
Association formall request 
the Budget Management 
Team not to lower tha 
amount appropriated in the 
operating budget for the 
Intramural Department for 
a minimum of three years." 
McKellar stated that he 
thought this was important 
in that "The money that we 
just passed go for im- 
proving the facilities. That 
why we've asked the 


school not to reduce their 
support, so that this student 
money will go further in 
improveing the Intramural 
Department." He added 
that nothing has been said 
to indicate this type action 
but that the SGA simply 
took the action "to grant 
future support." 

Bill No. 53 was also 
presented to clear up past 
insufficiencies of the 
Election Code that had 
neglected the supplying of 
information to candidates. 
McKellar proposed that a 
copy of the Election Code 

be presented to each candi- 
date filing for office, a 
mimeographed sheet 
containing election dates, 
picture dates, publication 
of statement dates, and 
other pertinent election 
information be presented to 
each candidate filing for 
office, and that all in- 
formation should be 
available from the date that 
the filing is opened. 

Finally, McKellar in- 
troduced Bill No. 54, 
stating, "Whereas, the 
increase in inflation has 
caused a sharp rise in the

§r° Last Tuesday evening, 
|i exactly six hours after the 
5: hotly off the press, I received 
: a phone call at home. 

"Person to person for 
Debbie Page," said a nasal 
s: sounding operator, 
la "This is she," I said 
\: furiously. 

A male voice answered 
£ back. "Miss Page, this is 
■• Jody Powell, Press secretary 
|i for President Carter calling 
J from Washington. May I have 
' a few minutes of your time?" 
I checked my calendar. I 
had seven and a half minutes 
to spare. "Certainly, Mr. 
Powell. Is there something I 
|: can do for you?" 
W "Well, Miss Page, it isn't 
i! : exactly what you can do for 
z: me, but what you can do for 
si your country. We have been 
=: closely watching your work as 
si for the past year, and have 
ii decided that you would fit 
:j right in up here in 
Si Washington." 

.- There was a slight pause as 
he waited for me to pick my 
I; teeth up off the floor. "We 
s! ; need you Miss Page. Your 
flawless journalism, your 
consistent perfection in ap- 
is: 'peasing everyone is just what 
s; the surgeon general ordered." 
My laughter interupted 
him. "Is this another crank 
call?" I asked. 
W><> "Oh no." he stated quite 
profoundly, "I'm very 
|i serious." 

"But I'm sure, Mr. Powell, 
that if you talked to some 
people closer to home they 
would remind you of my— er- 
uh — mistakes, " I argued. 

"Mistakes?" He sounded 
genuinely astonished. 

"Why, yes. Like the one 
about student apathy I did last 
i! summer. Certainly you heard 
If about that one..." I replied. 
"Oh, yes ma'am," he said, 
"That was when we first got 
I] '.wind of your work. A certain 
f ! Sally Smith wrote us about 
i; that. We were quite im- 
|j pressed, actually, with your 
||i .ability to parade around the 
§!: .subject without ever really 
§;: getting to the point.' Good 
i job, if I may say so myself." 
I was appropriately puz- 



c: j 

zled. "But didn't you hear 
about my more recent flops? 
Like, for example, two weeks 
ago I printed a beer picture 
that I still get anonymous calls 
about at three A.M. And what 

"Oh, but yes," he in- 
terupted, "That was ex- 
cellent. Billy was tickled to 
death about the free 
publicity— he's a nut about it 
you know — and Jimmy was so 
glad that the publicity was 
positive for a change that he 
grinned for weeks, except 
when Anwar was around of 

"But last week was really 
unforgivable — not to men- 
tion unexcusable. Didn't you 
hear? We put a big publicity 
article on front page about an 
upcoming lecture, only we 
stated that the lecture had 
already occurred. First the 
administration got upset, then 
I had the students down my 
back cause the faculty 
wouldn't let them out of class. 
I ahd to go to Leesville for 
two days and pay people just 
to have friends." 

"Now see, there's my point 
Miss Page, That just 
proves how well you would fit 
in up here." He chuckled 
softly. "Off the record, 
payoffs are really chic these 
days. So what do you say? 
Will you consider the offer?" 

It really did sound good. 
Unfortunately, I was already 
considering another offer, 
and I explained this to him. 
"You see, Tongsun Park has 
already offered me a job as 
leading propagandist for his 
'rice company' — and that will 
be hard to turn down..." 

" What if we offered to pay 
all your expenses to Washingt- 
on?" Powell tempted. 

"Does that include 
gasoline?" I asked. 

"Certainly, " he said 
enthusiastically, "and we'll 
even though in a couple of 
cans of oil...." % 

How could I refuse? "One 
more thing and it'll be a 
deal." I said a little hesitantly. 
"Name it." 

"Do you think the federal 
government would be in- 
terested in a good deal on 
some advertising?"

worst moment for the 
American space program 
occurred 12 years ago. A 
flash fire broke out aboard 
the Apollo space capsule. 
Three astronauts — Virgil 
Grissom, Edward White 
and Roger Chaffee - died 
in less than 20 seconds 
from the searing heat and 
dense smoke. 

Now, two space - scien- 
tists have told us that the 
tragedy could have been 
averted. Seven weeks be- 
fore the fire, officials were 
warned about the danger. 

A malfunctions investi- 
gator named Jesse Cope- 
land warned in writing that 
fire hazards existed on 
board the Apollo I. His 
report was co-signed by an 
associate and approved by 
the laboratory director. 

This suppressed report 
warned explicitly that a 
highly combustible coolant 
in the environmental con- 
trol system had leaked 
onto a maze of wires in the 
space capsule. The leak- 
age saturated the wires on 
four different occasions. 

National Aeronautics 
and Space Administration 
experts recommended that 
the wires be removed, the 
area cleaned with distilled 
water and new wiring be 
installed. Otherwise, they 
warned, there could be a 

Other space scientists 
told our reporter David 
Henry that the spilled coo- 
lant was cleaned, but the 
soiled wires were not 
replaced. They agreed that 
the bundles of wire, satu- 
rated with coolant, consti- 
tuted a fire hazard. 

The conclusions were 
supported by two other 
unpublicized reports. 
These were compiled after 

the fire by Dr. W.R. Downs 
of the Houston Space Cen- 
ter. Yet the review board 
investigating the fire virtu- 
ally ignored the evidence 
that the coolant leakage 
caused the fire. 

James Webb, who was 
the director of NASA at the 
time, told us the fire was 
too complex to determine 
any positive explanations. 
Our reporters also talked 
to some of the review 
board members, who con- 
tinue to insist that the 
coolant was not a signifi- 
cant cause of the tragedy. 

Expensive Treaty: Gov- 
ernment officials have 
been caught in one awk- 
ward lie after another until 
public confidence in the 
government has been 
shaken. Yet officials con- 
tinue to play loose with the 
truth to make their policies 
look good. 

For example, Secretary 
of State Cyrus Vance 
promised last year that the 
Panama Canal treaties 
would not "add to the bur- 
den of the American 
taxpayers." That's a di- 
rect quote from his Senate 

This promise helped per- 
suade the Senate to ratify 
the treaties. Yet Pentagon 
sources now tell us that 
Vance's statement was 
false, that the canal turn- 
over will cost the taxpay- 
ers hundreds of millions of 

Here are their rough cal- 

It should cost about $30 
million to close two Army 
bases in the Canal Zone. 
The Defense Department 
also will begin administer- 
ing facilities that were 
being run by the Canal 
Zone government. These 
will include hospitals and 
schools for American 

dependents. The added 
costs for the transfers and 
renovations should amount 
to about $63 million - $30 
million for the hospitals, 
$33 million for the schools. 

The taxpayers will also 
be stuck with a number of 
new operating expendi- 
tures, administrative fees 
and logistics costs. These 
should run about $205 mil- 
lion. Just the cost of mov- 
ing the remains of de- 
ceased Americans out of 
the Canal Zone is esti- 
mated at $1.5 million. 

The treaty negotiators 
assured the Senate last 
year that all expenses 
would be financed from 
canal revenues. Now they 
are changing their tune. 
And the public can be 
excused for wondering oc- 
casionally whom and what 
to believe. 

Border Problem: In ad- 
dition to conflicts over ille- 
gal aliens and drug smug- 
glers, another problem has 
cropped up on the Mexi- 
can-American border. Air- 
planes approaching the 
airports in Brownsville, 
Texas and Matamoros, 
Mexico, keep violating 
each other's air space. Be- 
sides violating interna- 
tional law, the planes are 
running risks of mid-air 
collisions. Poor telephone 
communications between 
the airport control towers 
have compounded the 
problems of trying to con- 
trol the air traffic. 

Gasohol Shortage: While 
motorists on the East 
Coast worry about a gaso- 
line shortage, Midwest 
drivers are concerned 
about a shortage of 
gasohol. Demand for this 
alternative motor fuel — a 
mixture of gasoline and 
alcohol — has skyrocketed 
in the Midwest, where

more than 350 service sta- 
tions market it. The prob- 
lem is a shortage of alcohol 
distilleries. Only one com- 
pany currently produces 
significant quantities of 
gasohol. Other distilleries 
are under construction, but 
they won't be producing 
the high-octane no-lead 
blend for at least another 
year. The alcohol used in 
gasohol mixtures can be 
distilled from sugar cane, 
sugar beets, wood wastes 
and even garbage. 

Revolving Door: Until 
recently, the acting direc- 
tor of the Food and Drug 
Administration's Bureau 
of Foods was Dr. Howard 
Roberts. While a govern- 
ment bureaucrat, he di- 
rected regulation of the 
food industry and guarded 
American consumers 
against unhealthy food 
additives. Roberts re- 
cently left the FDA to 
become the director of sci- 
ence for the National Soft 
Drink Association — the 
soda pop lobby.

Plaque origins 

by Helen Hubley 

Perhaps you've been strolling through campus near 
Caldwell Hall and noticed various plaques bearing such 
names as Herculeans, Idealists, Climbers, etc., inscribed 
into lamp posts. 

"What do all these names mean " you may have 
wondered. The secret to these inscriptions is that they were 
left as reminders of the members of the various classes of 
students at NSU during its early days as the Louisiana 
Normal College. 

In those days, NSU students were classified upon their 
entrance as members of the fall, spring, and summer class. 
These different classes chose names and mottoes for 
themselves and immortalized themselves at NSU by having 
their separate class names inscribed in various places on 

The three classes of 1925 donated the goldfish pond in 
front of Caldwell Hall. The climbers, Winter 1925 class, 
chose as their motto, "Not on top, but climbing". 

The Pierians, spring class of 1925 followed the motto, 
"Drink deep-or taste not of the Pierdian Spring, a little 
learning is a dangerous thing". 

"Launched but not anchored", was the motto of the 
Herculeans, Summer class of 1925. 

This inscription appears on a plaque beside the 
fish pond in front of Caldwell Hall. Several such 

plaques in the surronding area have aroused the 
interest of some students.

Student Government Association begin a com- 
prehensive advertising campaign to alert the students of 
the book co-op and how it will be operatedm, and 3) 
The Student Government Association begin plans, 
under the direction the vice-president to prepare for the 
successful operation and management of the SGA book 

Trie formation of this book co-op has been resear- 
ched extinsively by Nancy Jo Roberts, a student at 
Northwestern. In a formal report, Miss Roberts stated 
that the "purpose for organizing a book co-op at 
Northwestern State University is to provide the students 
with an alternative market for the selling and buying of 
used textbooks other than the NSU Bookstore." She 
further added that students should greatly benefit from 
the formation of the book co-op, and cited successful 
programs at several universities in Louisiana (i.e. 
Louisiana Tech, Nicholls State, and USL(. She said 
that the steps to forming such a co-op would be first to 
find a room that wood provide ample room for the 
display of books, One that would be easily accessible to 
students, at the same time providing ample security. 
Advertising was a factor she noted to be very importatn 
in the success of the program. 

McKellar, in comment of the bo-op, stated that this 
area was one "that SGA has been needing to move into 
for years. Other colleges across the state run similiar co- 
ops with tremendous success. It is interesting to note 
that these co-ops are supported not only by students but 
administration and bookstore management." 

Continuing, McKellar discussed the Cabinet positions 
added to the. SGA Executive Branch. "What this has 
done is finally established a cabinet form of executive 
branch. There are five appointed positions in addition 
to five elected positions, including Director of Public 
Relation, Spirit Committee Chairman, (both added 
previously this year), Director of Student Life, Director 
of Student Rights, and Secretarial Assistant. 

"Our student government has been operating for 
vears with no distinction between Executive and 
Legislative branches. These additional positions in the 
Executive will help to strengthen it, and in turn will 
strengthen the Senate."

Milsap to appear tomorrow 

The biggest country Wednesday night, March 
music show ever staged in 28, when two-time Grammy 
Natchitoches and at winner and Country Music 
Northwestern State Association entertainer of 
Univesity becomes a reality the year Ronnie Milsap 

performs in concert in NSU 
Prather Coliseum. 

The Ronnie Milsap 
Concert begins at 8 p.m., 
with the comedy team of 
Alex Houston and Elmer 
appearing as the opening 
act. The Northwestern 
Student Union Governing 
Board is sponsoring the 
country music show , for 
which general admission 
tickets are $5. 

Ron Thomas, big name 
entertainment chairman for 
the SUGB at NSU, said the 
coliseum's box office and 
doors will open at 7 p.m. 
"Our advance ticket sales 
indicate another sellout 
audience for a Nor- 
thwestern concert , so 
everyone is encouraged to 
arrive at the coliseum as 
early as possible," said 

This is another big year 
for Milsap. Thus far in 
1979, he has been 
nominated for a Grammy 
as the best country vocal 
performer (male) and for 
"The Hat" award for the 
Academy of Country 
Music's album of the year. 

Milap's most recent 
Grammy nomination for 
"Let's Take the Long Way 
Around the World" and his 
ACM nomination was for 
an album entitled "Almost 
Like A Song." 

The concert appearance 
at Northwestern will be 
Milsap's first since per- 
forming March 11 in 
Seattle, Wash. During this 

interim period, he has been 
in his personal recording 
studio in Nashville com- 
pleting work on an album, 
entitled "Images," which is 
to be released in April or 

Also scheduled for 
release in April is Milsap's 
newest single, "Nobody 
Likes Sad Song." This 
follows a double-hit single 
release, "Back On My 
Mind" and "Santa Bar- 
bara," in which both sides 
of the record have been 
charted nationally. 

Most country music fans 
will recall tha "Only One 
Love In My Life," released 
last fall, was Milsap's last 

Following his concert at 
Northwestern, Milsap 
closes his March tour 
schedule with a free concert 
March 31 in Cotton Bowl 
Stadium in Dallas Tex. 

Then in April , the blind 
country music singer is off 
to Europe for performances 
in Gothenburg, Sweden; the 
Wembley Festival in 
England; Rotterdam, 
Holland Frankfurt, Ger- 
many, he is also scheduled 
for concerts that month in 
Corinth, Miss., and at 
Disneyworld in Orlando 

Besides recording and 
performing in conerts this 
year, Milsap appeared on 
television in the NBC movie 
"Murder in Mu sic City" 
and with the Harlem 
Globetrotters on ABC's 
"Wide World of Sports." 

Milsap's 1978 career 
highlights included winning 
the CMA award for album 
of the year with "It Was 
Almost Like A Song" and 
having a gold album 
awarded to "Only One

Cameras in courtrooms deserves a try-out 

NATCH ITOCHES-Ninth Judicial 
District Judge Guy Humphries of 
Alexandria said at Northwestern State 
University this week that he will soon ask 
the Louisiana Supreme Court for an 
extension of a trial period for allowing 
news media cameras in his courtroom 
during trial proceedings. 

Appearing on a panel that discussed the 
merits of cameras in courtrooms, 
Humphries said the trial period which 
ended in late February was not as suc- 
cessful as he had hoped. 

"The State Supreme Court put the 
restriction on us that we had to have the 
consent of both the district attorney and 
the defendant before allowing cameras 
and broadcasting coverage," Humphries 
explained. "The district attorney 
cooperated in every case, but defendants 

and their attorneys would not." 

Humphries, who is preparing a report 
to the Louisiana Supreme Court on the 
trial period, said the decision to have 
cameras in courtrooms during trials 
"should be left up to the trial judge. I will 
ask the Supreme Court to permit this." 

The district judge added that, during 
the trial period he was able to allow the 
videotaping and airing of the closing 
arguments in one case while still cameras 
of the press and live radio broadcasting 
were allowed. 

Rapides parish assistant district at- 
torney Ed Roberts, whose office opposes 
the concept, stated during the panel 
discussion that he did not agree with the 
argument that such coverage would 
"educate the public on courtroom 

Both Roberts and Judge Humphries 
said the presence of cameras in the 
courtroom did not bother them. 

Also appearing on the panel was Ed 
Borne, newsman for KALB-TV in 
Alexandria. He told the audience that 
"most attorneys and judges do not want 
cameras operating in their courtrooms 
during trials because they fear the 

Judge Humphries, Borne and 
Alexandria Daily Town Talk 
photojournalist Leandro Heubner

Humphries' courtroom.

It may have been a bit 
difficult, but Jim Ford has 
learned his lines and once 
again, has grown his 
beard. ...for the second 
time. . 

The beard Ford started at 
the end of December, 1978 
did not remain on his face 
for long. The purpose in 
growing it was to begin his 
"image" which he was to 
portray as Tevye in the 
NSU University Theatre 
1978 spring production of 
ROOF. However, due to 
many conflicting problems 
in too short a perior of 
time, the FIDDLER 
production had to be 
cancelled. When Ford was 
informed of the can- 
cellation, he says that he 
just went home and shaved 
his beard. 

One year later, Ford was 
once agin, starting his 
beard. It is now in just the 
right shape for this year's 
University Theatre's spring 
production of FIDDLER 

FIDDLER will be 
presented in the NSU Fine 
Arts Auditorium April 4-6 
and Ford will be finally 
portraying the character, 
Tevye, which University 
Theatre Director Ray 
Schexnider asked him to 
play one year ago. 

Rehearsals are now fully 
underway for the 
production. The rehearsals 
are going very well, ac- 
cording to Ford, though he 
feels the show is a very 
difficult one to do. The 
main difficulty, he says is 
with the timing which is 
required between the actors 
and the orchestra; many 
lines are spoken in con- 
junction with the orchestra. 

His part as Tevye is 
especially difficult for him 
for it is a very demanding 
role-both vocally, and for 
the acting as well. "The 
part required a wide range 
of emotions and the shear 
volumn of the part is 
taxing," Ford says. 

Despite the few dif> 

ficulties. Ford can 
otherwise relate very well to 
the charcter. Besides having 
seen the play a few times in 
Dallas, Ford feels he reates 
best to it because he like 
Tevye, is a mature in- 
dividual and has children of 
his own. 

Ford has his favorite and 
his least favorite scenes in 
the play. His favority seems 
to be one of the more 
touching scenes. He says 
that it involves during and 
after one of Tevye's three 
daughters, Chava, marries 
a man who is not of the 
Jewish faith; this causes 
Tevye to deny her and she 
ceases to be his daughter. 
The ordeal makes him very 
sad and he finds it very hard 
to accept the fact that she 
has done such a thing. He 
finds it difficult to give her 
up but realizes that he must. 

As for his least favorite 
scenes. Ford says with a 
chuckle, "There are two or 
three places in this paly that 
I don't think I'll ever get." 

Ford has been rehearsing, 
officially, since the latter 
part of February. However, 
he has early access to a 
script and has been reading 
over the material and 
preparing for his role since 
the first part of February. 

Ford started musical 
rehearsals in February 
under the direction of NSU 
Music Directors Dr. 
William Hunt and Dr. John 
Taylor, in addition to 
regular play rehearsals. He 
has definitely been a very 
busy man. 

Although he wishes that 
he had an extra week for 
rehearsals, Ford is 
anxiously awaiting opening 
night. He says that 
rehearsals are presently at 
the stage where the play 
ought to start coming 
together and he feels certain 
that it will. He adds with a 
grin, "I don't think there is 
anything to worry about." 

According to Dr. William 
Hunt, musical coordinatoi 
of FIDDLER, "Jim Ford i] 
a good musician and an 
accomplished singer." 

Rav Schexnider, directoi 
of FIDDLER, adds that 
"Jim Ford is a suerli 
contractor who is j 
frustrated would-be actor, 
He has the capabilities o| 
performing professionally, 
in musical-comedies, whicfc 
is typical of many com 
munity business men whos< 
true vocation, given j 
choice, would bi 
professional theatre." 

hord is originally troii 
Senath, Missouri, in th( 
southeastern part of thi 
state. He received his B. A 
degree in music from LSI 
in 1955. After spendiri| 
four years in the service a 
an army pilot, Ford movei

has been a resident for th 
past 20 years.
